Please plan to come to the Christmas Intergenerational Sunday School and Bible Study in the fellowship hall starting on November 26. This is for everyone - adults, children, parents, grandparents, and singles! Activities include singing Christmas carols, reading Arch books, Bible study, and more!
God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the New King James Version of the biblical text, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. Like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption - and this story’s true! This group will meet in the fellowship hall weekly until December 12. Those wishing to join should purchase their own copy of The Story: The Bible As One Continuing Story of God and His People by Zondervan ahead of time (available at thriftbooks.com or amazon.com). Have questions? Contact Eunice.
This group meets on Fridays from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. at The Downtowner restaurant in Market Square. More men are always welcome!
