Bible Study: The Book of Job
Job is a complicated book, asking life’s most difficult questions. For millennia, it has confounded many as well as been a blessing to countless generations. It is one of the most brutally honest and raw books of the Bible, and at the same time provides some of the brightest rays of hope. Come, and discover what it has to say about you and your existence on earth. Even more, may it reveal to you a God of comfort, who accompanies us at all times, and even dares to enter into the difficulties of our human condition. As our guide, we will be making use of Concordia Publishing House’s LifeLight resource. Copies are available for just $12.00.
Day & Time: Sundays, at 9:00 A.M., Tuesdays, at 10:45 A.M.
Location: Sundays in church fellowship hall, Tuesdays in church overflow room
