Fourth Sundays in September, October and November

FRIENDLY BIBLE STUDY: THE STORY OF THE RICH YOUNG MAN  The passage we will consider is the story of the rich young man told in Gospel of Matthew 19:16–30, the Gospel of Mark 10:17–31 and the Gospel of Luke 18:18–30. We will begin by reading the passage from several different translations of the New Testament. Then each person will take a turn to answer the three questions. At the end we will have a general discussion of the story and our different perspectives on it.

A light lunch will be served starting at 11:45AM.  RSVP to John Gallery if you plan to attend (so there's enough food!)

All events will start at 12 noon in the Owen Biddle Room (second floor back) and will end at approximately 1:30PM.  Detailed information about each event will be sent separately.
