The Gospel of Mark

 

We're kicking off a NEW Bible study that depends on your participation to make it successful. It's an 11 week study through the book of Mark and  involves your personal devotional time, a brief video and a video conference with others to discuss the story and it's application.  You can use any of these tools, but to gain the most benefit, we urge you to participate in all three of them. 

 

Personal Devotional Time

First we ask you to read through the assigned passage for each week.  Most readings are about a  chapter long so it won't take you long to read through it.  After you read it, spend some time thinking about the passage and some insights or questions you come across.  You can CLICK HERE to download some thought questions for each study.  It's best if you do this reading days before our video conference.

It's  A New World

The COVID-19 crisis has demanded that we reinvent church fellowship and Bible study groups.  But nothing can stop us from spending time together exploring God's Word. We're committed to doing everything we can to build and grow our faith community and we hope you'll join us in this study as we pursue that goal.
