Wednesday Night Bible Study | April 22 | 6:30p | MPH

Wednesday Night Bible Study began a new series on April 8. The purpose of this series of studies is to respond to current events, especially those surrounding ISIS, Boko Haram, etc., and the impact all of this has on many people relative to Islam. Extremism seems to rule the airwaves on the part of all sides, factions, and points of view. We are looking for a biblical approach and a practical understanding of both Islam and current issues which will help us arrive at a good worldview about it all. Join us Wednesday, April 22 as Tommy Hodum and Paul Parks speak on, “Faces to Your Prayers.”
