Thursday Evening Bible Study
On January 16, 2019, we started an 8 week Bible Study from “The Passion Narratives” by Dr. J. Mickey Efird from Duke University. This study will include 8 weekly DVD presentations of the Easter story as contained in the Gospels of Matthew and John. Dr. Efird’s presentations are both informative and entertaining as we look at the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is no book purchase required but reading and study guides will be handed out each week to prepare for the class. Join us in our study of the Easter Story from Matthew and John. We will meet each Thursday night at 6:30 PM in the CLC through the completion of the study. Contact Jack McDonald if you have any questions.
We have added printable forms to our website to make it more convenient for you to fill out the required forms and turn them in rather than having to pick one up at the Church. You can find the forms we have posted so far under the MORE... column above.
Announcements for 2/16/2020
