Wednesday Bible Study
Topic: First Corinthians

   Conference room, lower level of Office Building

We'll examine this significant letter of Paul to the Christians at one of the most important early congregations gives us a glimpse of life in that part of the Church's history.

There is a study book that has questions for each session.  

God's Call    The Spirit's work      What is community?      
How do believer's serve?   Love and Hope    
The Lord's Supper

All participants are welcome - couples or singles - experienced students of the Bible
     - beginners at Bible Study

We’ll each have a book that is the study guide.  It will help with preparation for each session, and it will serve as the format for each session's discussion.  
Each week's subject is different from the last, so don't think that missing a session or two should keep you from joining!
