WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

2020-21 STUDY TOPIC:  THE BOOK OF GENESIS

Created in 2018, this new ministry hones in on the study of Scriptures.

The group discussion will be led by Helen Theodoropoulos, PhD, MA (Doctor of Theology from University of Chicago and Masters from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology). Helen is an Adjunct Professor at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox School of Theology.
