    Wednesdays @ 6:00pm beginning September 13

In this way, Making Sense of the Bible helps readers make sense of the Bible and leads them to a deeper appreciation for it, and a desire to read it and live by its precepts.   (Leader:  Rev.

The message is strong and clear: Don't let your questions stop you from accepting God's invitation to faith. Engage your doubt, and you may find you are closer to God on the other side. (Leader: Rev. Dean Libby)
