Lydia Women’s Sunday School Class

Lydia logo“On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there. 14 One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. 15 When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.”  Acts 16:13-15

Lydia came to know the Lord as an adult.  She was a working woman who sold purple cloth.  Lydia opened her home to the Apostle Paul and those with him, when they needed a place to stay.

The “Lydia” Sunday School class at Tallowood is named for this Bible character because like Lydia, many of us come to know the Lord for the first time as an adult. We all come to the table at different points in our faith journey, and we want to encourage each other as we grow together.

We welcome YOU to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM, in the West Tower, Room 202.
