Bible Study: "Jesus's Farewell Message"

Mondays at 5 pm

Starts September 12

Room 110

On the night before he was crucified, Jesus invited his disciples into a deep relationship with the triune God—and his invitation stands for us too. In this 6-part series, Francis Chan dives into John 13–17, a passage rich in promises, commands, and eternal truths. He’ll remind us we aren’t called to a part-time faith—we were made to know, walk with, and commune with God.

Led by Rev. Mel
