CHURCH FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS
Small groups begin today: This fall, in both our sermons and Small Groups, we will be studying the biblical book of Joshua. This is an opportunity to dig into a fascinating Old Testament book that we can often overlook for how God speaks to us through it now, and its application for us today. Joshua also contains some questions and issues that at first glance are thorny to deal with in Bible study, and seem to put God’s character and intentions in a negative light. The book invites questions and wrestling with Scripture. Sign ups at the welcome table. or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
