The women of HCF have been invited to attend Simeon Trust's Women's Workshop on Biblical Exposition., hosted at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. If you may possibly be interested or desire additional information contact Janylyn Anthony. The 2 links directly above provide additional conference information and the schedule.
The Workshop brochure explains: The Worshops on Biblical Exposition aim to recover the centrality of God's Word, taught expositionally, to the benefit of the life and health of the church in our generation. In order for this kind of teaching to take place , the Bible must be properly understood and rightly handled. This workshop will equip you through Principles of Exposition (instructional talks on how to better handle biblical texts), Expositions (engaging times of teaching), and Small Group Practice (times when you will share and receive feedback on two passages you will prepare in advance). Each of these sessions is carefully designed to be inter-related for the greatest value in improving your work.
