Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of The Spirit by Beth Moore is a 10 week study of the fruit of The Holy Spirit as presented in the book of Galatians. Beth walks through each trait and encourages women to know the freedom of a Spirit-filled life. Participants will look at the supernatural aspects of the fruit and that you cannot grow, learn, or produce the fruit on your own. Beth challenges you to develop the fruit by maintaining an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God. A Spirit-filled life truly results in living beyond yourself.

Items needed: hot & cold cereal, canned vegetables, macaroni, granola bars, sugar, flour, peanut butter, spaghetti, sauce, baking mixes, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, paper products including: paper plates, cups, napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, and diapers (any size).
