By Scripture Alone Discussion Forum

Monday, April 29
We've made our way through the synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and we'd love to discuss what we've read so far with you! Please join us for a By Scripture Alone discussion forum from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Questions or topics for consideration can be submitted to Pastor Schroeder in advance. In addition to the questions you submit, we'll be talking about the similarities and differences between these three Gospel accounts, looking ahead to the Gospel according to John, and continuing to marvel at the story of Jesus' life and ministry.  Hope to see you there!
