Bible Study Survey

Bible Study Survey

Many have asked if we could do a daytime study (as the Thurs morn. and Mon eve. ones do not work for them). Well, I have good news! Bob Burns, a long-time participant and even longer Bible enthusiast, who has deeply studied the scriptures, is offering three daytime course opportunities, either on Tues afternoons or Wed mornings. As you can see below, Bob is offering these at NO COST, however you have the option to purchase the book(s) on which the courses are based. Before firming up a decision about times, we need your feedback to these two Qs and interest level by mid-week next week:

  1. WHAT COURSE(S) ARE YOU INTERESTED IN? (Not asking for a commitment yet)
