June 2, 2019

Over the past two weeks we have discussed men needed and not needed in the Lord’s church. As we said when we began this brief series of lesson we would discuss or study “The women needed in the Lord’s church” and next week we will discuss “the Women Not Needed in the Lord’s Church.” When we began with the Men Needed In The Lord’s Church we first recognized the Gifts of Christ found in Ephesians 4:11 – 12, “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers
