NEW here?

So Elisha left him and went back.
He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them.
He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat
and gave it to the people, and they ate.
Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his servant.

– 1 Kings 19:21

REAL Women of Grace

LIVE on YouTube Monday, June 5 @7 PM

Our relationships with our dads can show up in many areas of life: relationships, self-worth, and even how we see God.

This month on REAL we’re talking about the signs of impact, and how our Heavenly Father’s love is more than able to cross the distance, filling in the gaps of the dads we wish we had.

Join us for some enriching conversation about REAL topics with REAL truth from the Word of God.
