Tuesday, December 17
“Gospel of Mark” Bible Study in the Friendly Room at 7:00 p.m.
We offer monthly Tuesday evening gatherings for in-depth studies of the Bible and our faith. The portrait of Jesus we find in Mark is one of a powerful man, confident of his choices, but thoroughly trusting in God even as he faces persecution and ultimately death. Mark’s words are an encouragement to uncertain disciples of all the ages to see clearly the path Jesus invites us to follow. Contact Pastor Sarah for more information.
