Please join a Bible Study series starting Tuesday, September 26 at 6:30 p.m. The Bible study will explore steps we can take now to prepare ourselves spiritually sot hat we remain faithful to God while facing persecution. Jesus told us to spiritually prepare for persecution, and persecution of Christians is a topic that is becoming more relevant in the U.S.
We meet for one hour each Tuesday via Zoom. You can participate by computer or phone. The study will be partially based on the experiences and learnings of EPC Pastor Andrew Brunson who was imprisoned for two years in Turkey. Contact Arlina Yates to receive the Zoom link.
