TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY: You are invited! Tuesday Bible Study begins September 15 at 9:30 a.m. in the Friendship classroom. October through May the group meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday.
This Bible Study has been continuing for about fifty years! Many changes have occurred over those years. Now men and women attend (only women for many years), and now one hour of study (it used to be a tea and cookies social hour and then study). It remains a wonderful time of teaching (usually by a pastor) and learning from a selected book of the Bible, discussion, fellowship, friendship and laughter!
Watch the bulletin for an announcement coming soon regarding teacher and which book we will study, but do mark your calendar now! BIBLE STUDY ON SEPTEMBER 15!
