 ONGOING EVENTS
 
The Wednesday Morning Bible Study is Returning! | January 11, 9:30am | Room 217  
We will be tackling the Book of Revelation using Nancy Guthrie’s Book “Blessed” - a 12 week study which focuses on the 7 blessings found in the Book of Revelation and the hope they promise for those who follow Jesus.  The book can be purchased from Nancy Guthrie’s website. You can also download the free discussion guide which we will be using each week. If you choose to purchase your book through Amazon or other vendors, you can still download the free study guide from Nancy Guthrie’s website and we will have copies of the study guide available as well. Our first study will be January 11 at 9:30 am in Room 217.  Please read the introduction of “Blessed” in preparation for the study. A quick read-through of the Book of Revelation would also be helpful. We hope you will join us!
