Friday Morning Bible Study Resumes September 15

All are invited to Friday Morning Bible Study. We gather after 10:00 a.m. for snacks and fellowship in the 2nd floor council room. Bible Study and prayer begin at 10:30, and we finish approximately 11:40 a.m.

Friday Morning Bible Study is an opportunity to enrich life in preparation for the Sunday assemblies. We read the texts assigned for the Sunday liturgy and prepare ourselves for the encounter with the living Lord who promises to be with us in word and sacrament.
