upcoming events …

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY –Tuesday, January 21, 7pm running weekly for 7 weeks along side the Ladies Bible Study with the book called TOTAL FORGIVENESS. The act of Total Forgiveness may be the hardest thing we are ever called to do… as spectacular as any miracle – a feat greater than climbing Mount Everest. Possibly R. T. Kendall’s most important work to date explains what God calls for as total forgiveness. No sin or action is unforgivable. We are called to keep no record of wrongs, to refuse to punish those who have hurt us, to show mercy & avoid any form of bitterness. A radical message for a divided world! See David Yuke.
LADIES BIBLE STUDY – Tuesday, January 21, 7pm, KEEP IT SHUT by Karen Ehman. Leader Margaret Mau. 6 sessions, Book & DVD Presentation. Karen addresses women & words in Keep It Shut with a kind, encouraging, and sometimes funny delivery. See Margaret Mau.
