Sunday Night Senior Worship Begins
August 12 at 5pm in the Fellowship Hall
The Bible tells a story and the amazing narrative begins with creation and concludes with Jesus triumphant. Between Genesis and Revelation is the story of God's interaction with the descendants of Adam. Through these sessions, led by John Lasater, we will develop a twelve-point timeline, which will serve as the framework for all the characters and events in the Bible. We will take a journey from Creation, through the emergence of the Hebrew people and into the Roman world to the First Coming of Jesus the Messiah, His Ascension, and His triumphant return to the earth!
