NEW CLASS: “WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM”   |   Chapel

Bonnie Eckerd will lead a six week study starting Sunday January 7th at 9:30 in the Chapel entitled “Who Do You Say That I Am?”.  We will be exploring the answers to this question given by by angels, prophets, the Magi, John the Baptist, God and the Apostle Peter.  Then we will study the answers Jesus gives to the question of who he is in his  “I Am” sayings.  Please consider kicking off the New Year by drawing closer to the Babe of Bethlehem as we study the Word.
