This Week’s Bulletin
Posted the Friday before each upcoming Sunday
Mid-Week Bible Study
Each week we will take a close look at something that has been in the news, and through the lens of Scripture, discover what lessons we can take from it as Christ’s disciples. We will begin with a look at the rescue and recovery response to hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Come with stories you heard on the news about the many ways people have jumped in to help.
Both the noon and the 4:30 p.m. groups will meet in the classroom in the Fellowship Center.
