Lenten Bible Study

Lenten Bible Study: Tuesdays, February 24th – March 31st at noon

(Except Mar. 3rd)

& Thursdays, February 26 - March 26

     In this five-session Lenten bible study, Who Is This Man? by John Ortberg reveals how Jesus made an inescapable influence on our world and how you can too.
     Jesus is history’s most familiar figure. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. He is the man who won't go away, and yet He did not brashly defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not start by telling his disciples, "Here are proofs of my divinity; affirm them and I'll accept you.”
     Who Is This Man? illustrates how Jesus’ influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the evolution of art, science, government, medicine, and education. His vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope continues to inspire and challenge you to grow your faith.
