The Last Week Women's Bible Study

Mondays at 11am beginning October 21, join us for a new study. The Last Week will follow the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ during His final week in Jerusalem. We will unpack the Gospel of Mark's day-by-day account of the Last Week and we will explore the spiritual dynamics of Jesus' true passion - His message of the Kingdom of God. As we move toward the celebration of His birth in the next few months, we will be reminded of His life, sacrifice and love for all. R.S.V. P. to Victoria.
