Ladies Bible Study

Join us for a study on “The Gospel of Mark:  The Jesus We’re Aching For” by Lisa Harper.  Follow Jesus through His days of early ministry all the way to the cross.  It’s there we discover what it means to be the recipients of His excessive compassion and the very reason for His all-consuming passion.    Both a morning and evening study is available.  It starts Tuesday, September 12, 9-11 am in the Youth Wing and Wednesday, September 13, 6:30-8:00 pm, in room 177.       The cost is $13 for the book.  Questions?
