It underscores the unique relationship that God chooses to have with us as God’s people. This relationship is grounded in the faithfulness of God’s love and on our ongoing commitment to stay in love with God while we share signs of that love with others. Participants will be expected to study daily and participate in weekly group discussions on Tuesday mornings.  New Bible Study participants are welcome.
