Bible Study
The first of a five week study on the books of Ruth and Esther began yesterday evening, and will be held each Thursday during May.  The classes on May 9, 16, and 23 will meet at Pyros restaurant in the Park Place Centre on the corner of Ridgeway and Park, where we will gather around 6-6:30 to eat and fellowship together before the study.  The final class (May 30) will meet at the church in room 13 from 7-8 p.m.
While the study will draw on the two pertinent sections of Dr. Robert Williamson's book The Forgotten Books of The Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls For Today, it is not necessary for the study to purchase and/ or read the text. However, if you are interested in reading the sections on Ruth and Esther, two copies of Williamson's book are available in the church library.
If you have any questions concerning this study, please contact Sarah Strong at 299-3279 or
