The group changes a little bit each year but the wisdom and encouragement that TRIUMPH WEST is shared remains consistent. It’s a very welcoming, friendly environment so I would encourage anyone who is looking for a women’s group to consider coming to Heart to Heart or any of the Women’s Bible Studies!
