MEN'S BREAKFAST BIBLE STUDYmen_header
The Men's Breakfast Bible Study has started the fall Zoom version of Bible study led by Jim Pace. The group meets by Zoom each Thursday at 9 a.m., so the study starts two hours later than the past breakfast meeting time at the church, For some who could not make the early meeting the 9 a.m. start may work better. Each week's Bible study is based on the Lectionary Bible Readings for the upcoming Sunday. If you would like to attend the Zoom version of the Bible study, please let the church office know so your name can be added to the invitation list. You will be sent the Zoom instructions and the Lectionary Bible Reading list. You will need to provide your name, phone number, and email address. Come join the group, Jim is a great leader and there is a lot of group participation.
