What is... The Good Book?

We are excited to invite you to join us for The Good Book series. By zeroing in on key chapters of the Bible, The Good Book offers a user-friendly guide to the Bible's biggest ideas. We will journey together to explore topics like, "God Is Good When Life Gets Messy," "Tough Love, Troubled Times," and "Jesus Won't Leave us As We Are."
