Men's Bible Study
Wednesdays 6:30 PM | CrossTraining Room
This group begins Wednesday, September 13. The world teaches us to revolve our actions, thoughts, and beliefs around ourselves. “It’s all about you!” we are encouraged to think. In the world’s philosophy, we become the author and hero of our story. But the Bible teaches a different view, one where another hero—the actual Author of life—takes center stage. In the book of Job, God asserts his preeminence and displays his power. Join us as we study the book of Job through video, discussion, and diving into God’s Word.
