Sunday Morning Bible Study  

Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. all ages are welcomed to join the Bible Study in the Fireside Room. The  theme is “Images of Christ”. Good Shepherd. Branch. Cornerstone. Way. There are many images of Christ in Scripture. Some of these word-portraits are easier for us to grasp than others, but each reveals an important aspect of who Christ is. By helping us understand the different images, this series “Images of Christ”, will lead us to know and respond to the reality behind the images–Christ himself–in new and deeper ways. Our summer series started on June 4th and ends on August 27th and be led again my various members of our congregation in the Family Life Center.
