Worthy: DIFW Book Club September 2020

Joanna Meyer

This September, join us for a virtual book club as we read and explore Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women.

Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher highlight the role of women throughout Scripture, from the Creation story in Genesis through the growth of the church in the New Testament to the gifts women bring to life and ministry today.

We'll provide three blog posts and discussion guides delivered via email to help guide our virtual conversation. Then, on October 1st, we'll talk with Elise and Eric about the book in a live webinar exclusively for book club participants.
