Cover Philip Yancey Book

Every other Tuesday (in May) at 7pm via Zoom

Next meeting is Tuesday, May 2nd

Join Nels Hendrickson as he leads the study of “What’s So Amaging About Grace?”, by Philip Yancey. This book is more than a great song and explores grace at a new level. For example, how are we doing with grace in a world that knows far more cruelty and unforgiveness than Mercy?

Join us Tuesday evenings at 7 pm on Zoom!

Do you want to travel to the Middle East? Join Pastor Qualley via Ray Vander Laan’s video “Fire on the Mountain” as the Bible study is filmed on location in Israel. This six-week series discusses when Israelites left Egypt, even though they were free, they found new challenges. God provides lessons to them and how we can live them out in our lives today. This Bible study is at Heritage Hunt in the Marsh Mansion the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month at 10:30 am. Next meeting is Wednesday, May 24.

Bible Backstory – A totally new study of the Bible!

Bible Backstory Returns – Bible Backstory is… back! Our popular Bible overview course, usually taught Sundays during the Sunday School hour, will now be available online. If you’ve been in this year’s class all along, you can pick up right where we left off with Session 19a.

One or two new sessions (also about 30 minutes each) will be posted weekly.
