PASTOR’S STUDY – 10 KEY EVENTS IN JESUS LIFE
As we look back upon our lives, we notice there are several key events, key decisions, that happened that opened the door to new chapters in our lives.  In 10 Key Events in Jesus’ Life we will explore not just 10 key events in Jesus’ life and ministry but also have a chance to reflect on key events in our lives and connect Jesus’ story to our own.  Classes will be on Tuesday mornings at 6:30 a.m. and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. at the church.  Bring your own Bible. Outlines of the readings are available in the office.
