Artist of Souls,
You sculpted a people for yourself out of the rocks of the wilderness and fasting.

NEW COOPERATIVE PARISH BIBLE STUDY 
FROM ADVENT TO ASCENSION

                                    Rev. Jim Anderson leads an online
                                    Bible Study Mondays at 1:30 pm. that
                                    will continue until Easter, April 4, 2021.                                      The study uses a new book: 
                                     FROM ADVENT TO ASCENSION: A
                                     JOURNEY WITH JESUS. Members                                           and friends of all three of our                                                       Cooperative Parish are invited to                                                 participate. The plan is to meet one                                             hour per week at a time convenient                                             to participants on Zoom.com as long                                           as the Covid-19 restrictions are required. The book features daily Scripture readings from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John that are woven into a chronological account of Jesus' life and ministry. It also includes articles, hymns, and some 500 illustrations of Jesus' life on the stamps of the world that shed light on the background and meaning of the readings.

Books are available at a special price of $20 through the author. Those interested should make contact with Rev. Anderson at 985-8823 or revjima@yahoo.com if they have questions or send $20 through the church office.
