Men's Bible Study: "Journey Men" led by Doug Ezell

Continues every 1st & 3rd Mondays

6 pm in  Room 109

The Journeymen will resume studying a book they had just begun before the shutdown. They will be studying “The Story” written by Randy Frazee, with an introduction by Max Lucado. The Story offers a rich overview of the Bible. It helps us see how God’s work of salvation through Jesus Christ was a fulfillment of all of His work expressed throughout the Old Testament.

Study will be approximately 15 sessions. Men of the church and the community are welcome to join anytime. 

Led by Doug Ezell, retired United Methodist Pastor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
