Pastor's Bible Study
Pastor Brian will begin a new Bible study on Sundays at 6pm, starting
September 19. Each lesson will be a stand-alone study, so you don't have
to worry about long term commitments or getting behind if you miss
one. The first lesson is a reflection on grief and healing entitled "‘Living
Between’, 'Lord Have Mercy' and 'Thank You, Jesus'". Please join us!
My next step:
