Weekly Bible Study

Meeting Thursday mornings from 10-11 a.m.

"The bible is a book with many books written it and written a long time ago in a faraway land.  Come join us in exploring the bible readings for the coming Sunday.  I will give some introduction and background on each of the readings, and we will explore together.  We will conclude with a brief form of Morning Prayer.  Come as you are and when you can.  Each week is a stand-alone session."  Dave Penniman, Facilitator
