NEW BIBLE STUDY
Have you ever wondered what it must have been like for Mary to see and experience Jesus' life in this world? In this new Bible Study we will search God's Word and consider Jesus' birth, life, and ministry from Mary's perspective. Our study will include watching the film 'My Son, My Savior'. In each of the four-week sessions we will view a part of the film and then engage in faith discussion. This new study begins Sunday, November 22, starting at 9:15 am in the Commons. We hope to see you there!
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY
A "Women's Bible Study" will be offered to all the women of St. Peter congregation beginning in September.
