Women’s Connections Bible Study
Tuesdays | 6:30 p.m. |Wesley Rooms 306-307 | Beginning September 19
Cost: $10
Who were the disciples who followed Jesus? They weren’t saints, scholars, or religious sages. They were common people: a handful of fishermen, a hated tax collector, and an impulsive political zealot. They were hopelessly human. Yet, Jesus chose these twelve disciples to accomplish his purposes. Twelve Ordinary Men is a study by John MacArthur, which allows participants to understand the hopes and doubts of the disciples and hear the power of Jesus’ words in a whole new way.  This Bible study, led by Janet Hailey, meets Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. beginning September 19.
