The Men’s Bible study begins again Monday, September 14 at 7pm at the church. Several guys will also be meeting at 6:30am on Thursdays at the church if that is more convenient for you.
We will be studying 1 John, 2 John and then 3 John through the end of the year. We will simply be using our bibles so there is no study guide or book to purchase. Please join us every week or when you are available.
