Bible Study

Spring 2020
St. Peter Bible Study Group with Deacon Clarke Cochran 

Topic: The Book of Genesis

During Spring 2020 we will read Genesis. We literally go back to the beginning. We let the text speak to us, and we respond. Our approach is to read a certain number of chapters for each week and then to share our insights, impressions and questions with each other.   To print a copy of the Spring outline go to this link.
