Community Dinner and Bible Study
Sunday Adult Forum at 9:00 am until 9:50
Want to delve deeper? You're not alone. Join us at 9 am Sundays for teaching and discussion, led by The Rev. John Doherty, Deacon and Canon Administrator. Currently we are reading the Gospel According to Luke with The Good Book Club which invites to join in reading the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts during Lent-Easter 2018. We start reading Luke on Sunday, February 11 and read a section of Luke’s gospel every day through the season of Lent. Then the entire season of Easter will be devoted to daily readings from the Book of Acts. Didn't read this week, fine, join us for fellowship and inspiration.
