THURSDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY

crossThursday morning Bible Study for the fall will start on Thursday, September 24th 10:15 a.m. to 11:45. a.m. in Bronte Hall. We will meet each Thursday until the end of November, using a study guide to study The New Testament books, 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, known as the Pastoral Letters. A great time of fellowship, learning, questioning. A time of exploring the Bible in more depth, an opportunity to get to know others and ourselves better. No previous experience necessary, come as we explore and journey together. Everyone is welcome to attend. Cost of the study guide book is $10.00, sign up and book available through church office. For more info, please speak with Cathy Winn.
