Happy Easter



Pastor Mary is leading a bible study on Jesus Christ.
The Tuesday evening group and the Sunday morning group will be answering the question -- "Who is Jesus?"
This study was developed by John Stott -- preacher, evangelist, and communicator of scripture worldwide.
We will be led in 13 discussions by his book on Jesus. The cost of each book is $5.60.
