By Scripture Alone Daily Bible Reading Discussion Forum

Now that we have made it through the five books of Moses (by the end of the week), it would be a great time to gather and discuss what we have learned so far (and ask questions if we have those, too). Join us in the fellowship hall on Thursday, March 16 for a 90-minute discussion on our readings up to this point. If you have particular topics or questions you would like discussed or answered, please send a note to Pastor Schroeder ahead of time by email here. For those who have been keeping up with your daily readings, great job—you are finding out (or rediscovering) the blessings of regular time in God’s Word!
