Where God's Love is Felt and Shared
ADULT EDUCATION
Sundays in July
8:30 am, Fellowship Hall
Refreshments Served
Pastor Dennis Nelson will lead us in a study of the life of Abraham as found in the book of Genesis. We will see how Abraham responded to God's call, received the blessings of God's covenant, and experienced God's perfect timing and abundant provision. As we do so, we will ask ourselves...

  • What is the first step that I need to take in order to set out to where God wants me to go?

  • What has kept me from being able to see and experience the promises and power of God?

  • When in my life have I needed to wait, or when should I have waited, because God's perfect timing was not yet?

  • When has God come through for me just in the nick of time?
