**NEW** Women’s Saturday Morning Bible Study and Breakfast @ Board Room at First Presbyterian Church of Cranford, NJ
Oct 20 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Why should men have all the fun (and food)?

Following on the heels of the great success of our Men’s Prayer Breakfast (Wednesdays, 6:30 am at The Rustic Mill Diner), our Women are making their own fun!

You’re invited to a light breakfast (bring your own coffee) with other like-minded women to follow along as we work through “We Make the Road by Walking” by Brian D. McLaren. The Pastors’ weekly sermons will be based on this book, and we can dive deeper into scripture, or if that’s not your thing, learn about practical applications of Faith in your every day life.

The sessions will be led by Lauren Parrott.  Lauren can be reached by email at lgparrott11784@gmail.com .

Meet us in the Board Room at 8:00 am on Saturdays!
