ADULT BIBLE STUDY

ADVENT BIBLE STUDY

Wednesday Evenings 6:45 pm – 7:45 pm

Nov. 30th, Dec. 7th ,14th and 21st

The season of Advent (from the Latin word “ad-venire” or “to come to”) is the four-week period leading up to Christmas. This is a time of waiting and preparing for the celebration of Christ’s birth and for Christ’s second coming.

I hope you will join me on Wednesday evenings as we explore the meaning of this season through prayer, reflection and Bible study. All are encouraged and welcome!
