Sunday Morning Bible Study

This fall we are pleased to welcome back Osvaldo Vena as the leader of our Sunday morning bible study class. Rev. Vena, a member of our church, is a professor of New Testament Interpretation at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston.

To start we will finish studying the book of Revelation. Don’t worry if you did not attend the spring class as our first few sessions this fall will include a catch up on the previous material. After completing our study of Revelation, we will move to the book of Mark and a brief account of Daniel.
