Genesis: In the Beginning…

This study takes us back to the beginning of the biblical story with a look at the Genesis 1 – 11.
We’ll take a look at the biblical accounts of Creation, Adam & Eve, Cain & Abel, Noah’s Ark, and the infamous Tower of Babel.
There’s death, division, a case of murder, and plenty of scandal. Yet there’s a reason these stories are not only among the first we encounter in the bible, but among the first we encounter growing up.
So if you’re looking for a little scandal and intrigue to liven up your bible reading, make plans to join us, beginning Thursday November 3rd for either our afternoon session, from 1:00-2:30 p.m., or for our evening session, from 7:30-9:00 p.m.
