For the next three (3) months we will be studying from the book of Genesis. The title of this quarter’s study is “God’s Word and God’s People.” This quarter surveys the book of Genesis in developing lessons on God’s creation of the universe, earth, and people. It also details how God continues to co-labor with sinful humanity in reconciling and re-creating order in all things. Come join us at 8:15 a.m. in the Malone Hall on Sunday, September 2, 2018 for our first lesson “Out of the Darkness” from Genesis 1:1-13. Miss Jennie will be facilitating the discussion. With all the evil that is going on in the world today, take this opportunity to come and rediscover that this truly is OUR FATHER’s World! Breakfast will be served.
