Sunday Morning Bible Study
Please join Pastor Bob in the Fellowship Hall as kicks-off his time with us as our interim pastor with a new study.
Wednesday Noon Bible Study
We will read through First Corinthians. Understanding that this book was divinely inspired, but also a personal letter written by a real person to real people. We will attempt to put ourselves in the place of those members of the church in Corinth, and read this book as if it was a letter written to us. Our goal will be to find the hope that exists in this letter for us today, and in our times. We will examine what is said about human faults, and the way of truth.
“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” -1 Corinthians 1:18
