Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible
This summer Father Potthoff will be hosting a Bible Study in the parish hall on Thursday evenings: Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. If you have ever wanted to know more about the “big picture” in the Bible this study is for you. It is an eight session study. The first four classes will be held on the following dates: June 17, June 24, July 8, July 22, August 5, August 12, September 2, and September 9. The time is 6:30 p.m. The paper registration forms at the doors of the church are for planning purposes. If you would like a workbook, access to the videos on your computer at home, and other materials you must register at the publishers website: https://ascensionpress.com/collections/unlocking-the-mystery. Select and purchase the “Study Set” for $24.95. The handbook and access to the videos at home is not strictly necessary, but it gives you a fuller experience. If you have any questions just contact Father Potthoff. Also, if you would like to help others out by providing hospitality at the doors, providing snacks, or being a small group leader please let Father know as well.
