New Group Forming! Online Bible Study or Book Group
Almost 20 people participated in online small-group Bible studies for 6 weeks in the season of Easter. Would you be interested in participating in an online study group over the summer? We have several ideas for topics and will choose whichever one is most appealing to participants. If you are interested in learning more, contact Becky, who will be sending out organizing emails to interested participants in mid-June.
