Pastor Doug invites you to his upcoming Lenten Study, on Wednesdays during Lent, at 6:30 pm, at Green St., beginning March 13 and ending April 17. Adam Hamilton’s book, “Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple” will be used. There will be a bonus night of study, after Easter, on Wednesday, April 24, to explore Peter’s discipleship, after Jesus’ glorious resurrection! During the entire study we will look for insight into the quality, uniqueness, and growth of our discipleship. We will ponder our discipleship as we ponder Peter’s. May our walk with Jesus be renewed and inspired as we study how Peter’s discipleship lifted him! Please join us! Study books are available in the office. A $5 donation is requested, but not required.
