Bible Study We meet every other Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm to give working persons an opportunity to participate. Our topic is Exodus. We will follow the journey of God’s people begun in Genesis. Here, we find them slaves in Egypt. But God has not abandoned them. How will God call them, lead them, and respond to their failures? The Exodus of God’s people highlights themes of continuing importance: Liberation, Covenant, and Worship.  To receive notes, outlines, and sign-in information, please contact Deacon Clarke  Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm, beginning September 2, via Zoom.
