JOIN US FOR BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER MEETING VIA CONFERENECE CALL 

The new crisis-driven rules and guidelines have driven us to temporarily change the way we do things, but we
are still a vibrant spirit-filled church. We are not, and we will never become a dysfunctional congregation!


BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER MEETING
After a brief disruption, our Thursday night Bible Study classes will resume. We cannot hold the large classes
in the church; and so, we will convert to Home-Study using a teleconferencing phone system.
I'm asking all members to join the class by dialing in on the telephone conference line on Thursday evening.
The present study series is based on “The Purple Book” which focuses on building strong disciples.
Although the present class is halfway through the book, each chapter/topic stands-alone; and so, new folks
can join the class at any point.
I would ask that all ministers, deacons, and deaconess plan to attend the study on Thursday.
DAY: Each Thursday Evening      TIME:7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

If you are conferencing via computer, tablet, or smartphone:

1. Log in to your computer and select your browser of choice. 
2. Copy the following URL into your browser: Zoom.us   +    Enter
3. Click on "Join Meeting"

2. Follow the prompts to enter the Meeting ID #729 538 4923  and Password # 282491


BOOK: “The Purple Book” (Not required, available on Amazon or Christianbook.com)
I have attached a copy of the pages for the ongoing session
so that new attendees can prepare for Thursday's study.

Mark 6:37-42 New International Version (NIV)

37 But he answered, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “That would take more than half a year’s wages[a]! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?”38 “How many loaves do you have?” he asked. “Go and see. When they found out, they said, “Five—and two fish.”39 Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. 41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. 42 They all ate and were satisfied,
