Pittsburgh, PA  15237

The St. Lydia Women’s Study Ministry continues its series on “Women of Faith.”  Each session features a different woman and her life in Christ from the history of the Church. In our “troubled times,” we need the encouragement of those who have gone before us, whether they are faithful women of the Old Testament, New Testament or recent saints. We also need the encouragement, love and prayers of one another. This is not just about learning, it is also about sharing, in our uniqueness as women, the journey we are on toward our own salvation and sainthood. The group meets approximately every other Tuesday in the Fireside Room. The church is open for personal prayer and coffee will be served in the Fireside Room at 9:30 am. The study is begins at 10 and ends at 11:15. The following is the list of remaining dates for the year:  Dec 2, 16;  Jan 20; Feb 3, 17; Mar 3, 17; April 14, 28; May 12. Please come and invite others! A complete schedule and list of topics can be found at www.HolyTrinityPgh.org/saintlydia.
