TUESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
10:00 a.m. in Souers Hall
WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY
6:30 p.m. in Souers Hall
The adult Bible study will not meet during Holy Week (Tuesday, April 16 and Wednesday, April 17) and will resume Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24.
Our final Bible study for this season is a five-week introduction to the Torah – the first five books of the Bible. Each week we will consider the structure, key themes, and various insights of a different book with the goal of providing tools for individual study over the summer and hope of returning for a more in-depth study of each book in the fall.
On Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24 we will focus on the book of Leviticus, our third study of the series. Please read Leviticus prior to our time together if possible. As always, please bring a Bible and something to write with if possible.
