Adult Christian Formation
Discovering the Bible
30 Sessions, Beginning September 14, 2022, Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8 pm, Zoom
9:45 am, Sundays, April 24, May 1, 8, and 22; in person and on Zoom (hybrid)
How do the ancient journeys of faith taken by Moses, Ruth, Miriam, and Isaiah mirror your journey today? Where are Jesus and the apostles leading us now?
In a 30-session series beginning in September, we will get to know the people who have left us this enduring legacy of faith. Pastor Matt will lead the study which continues through May of 2023 (not including holidays).
Each booklet costs $40 and can be shared by couples. Financial assistance is available. Please contact the church office at email@example.com or 360.452.4781 if you would like to participate in this study so that we will know how many books to order. For more information about the publisher of this study, visit their website at https://kerygma.com/pages/about-us.
