Sermon Series: The Bible in a Year

dusty-bible-600x345Beginning July 7th, Pastor Janette will start her year long sermon series that will cover all books of the Bible.  You can prepare for that by simply by reading the Bible.  You will be informed on what to read ahead of time and there will be Sunday school classes based on that Sunday’s sermon.  The first class is Sunday, July 7 at 5:45 in the Social Hall. Wednesday classes may be held if there is a demand.

The series will skip around the Bible. The first sermon on July 7th, will be on Galatians 6:7-16, “New Creation is Everything”

Start your preparations by getting a Bible. We will use the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), which is copyrighted and a little more expensive, but other version will be useful. You can get Bible software for your computer and smartphone and some of it is free. It will have multiple versions.  Search via Google, or search your smartphone store.  You might take a look at “YouVersion” bible.
