You will get coffee, donuts, and a chance to exchange your view of what the scripture says, with the others in the group. Don’t be shy or think you have to be a Bible scholar to attend. Many times we have opposing views, but that is how we learn. Our upcoming topic, “Is the US a Christian nation?”, begins February 13.

Mission Challenge from Men’s Bible Study

CAN YOU SPARE $1 PER WEEK?

This past fall, the Thursday morning Men’s Bible Study Group decided to pick a mission program to support. The program chosen was FREE THE KIDS, a program that was already ongoing and designed to help children and their families in Haiti. Our local connection is Jack Reynolds. We each agreed to donate $1 (or more) per week. Now, we would like to extend an invitation to each person in the congregation to set aside $1 per week and give it to this program. You can give weekly or when the chance arises. Put your dollars in an envelope marked “Free the Kids” and put it in the offering plate. If you want more information about the program or how you can help, click here or contact Jack Reynolds and look for brochures in the Narthex.
