BIBLE STUDY NEWS!


Our winter/spring scripture study is coming! We will be studying Isaiah from the Old Testiment. The book of Isaiah is quoted in the New Testiment more often than any other Old Testiment writing other than Psalms, often quoted by Jesus himself. In ISaiah, we encounter God's accusation against Israel, the holiness of God, hope for a messianic king, prophecies of restoration and challenges for exiles returning to the homeland. We will be meeting on Tuesdays beginning January 30 at 7pm in room 4. Cost for the study is $25, which includes a study guide and commentary, as well as an informative DVD that we watch together at the end of every evening. This is a 13-weed session. To register and reserve your book set, call or text Pam Fischer at 951-205-3353 or emailt at packerhome@earthlink.net.

Sign-ups will also be taken at the first meeting on January 30, but to guarentee receiving a book set register early. Hope to see you there!
