LEARNING

Christian Formation classes will resume January 7

JANUARY ADULT FORMATION: A Roadmap to the Old Testament. Roughly 70% of the Bible is the Old Testament.  Want to have the tools to bring greater understanding to your reading of the Old Testament?  Beginning January 7, 2018 a new class begins!  This is aimed each week to discuss specific portions of the Old Testament and how they fit into the bigger Story of what God has done!  What a great way to start off the year!  Very easily coupled with a personal Bible reading plan for you to read through the Bible in 2018 (We’ll offer a daily plan that can achieve this!)    9:30 McCray Hall – Taught by Jon Corbett
