Bible Study

Fr. Brent is taking a hiatus from Bible Study. His last Bible study was November 15. (November 21-22 and November 28-29 have been cancelled.) His calendar has gotten full as he ministers to a growing Parish. He will miss his time with us and prays we will continue to read the Bible and grow on our Faith Journey.

When Bible study resumes we will be reading the

Book of Revelation.
