Open Scripture. Join the Conversation
There is no better time than summer to study the Bible. The rhythm of life, at least for many of us, seems to allow time to do things we otherwise find difficult to fit into full schedules.
Pr. Randy is offering a six-week Bible study, “Growing the Church God’s Way: A Study of Ephesians,” through August 28. The class meets in The Gathering Place from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M. Light snacks and beverages will be served. A $10 donation will help cover the cost of materials.
Come and join the conversation!
