"The Quest" by Beth Moor Summer Bible Study begins July 8th. Curiosity is hardwired in humanity. We have this innate need to question and seek after what we don't know or understand. In this 6-session Bible Study, delve into scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him - a God who desires to be found and known. In this lifelong quest of faith, learn to develop your intimacy with Him and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God. Study will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. July 18 through August 22nd in Tower Chapel. Sign up at the Welcome Desk and reserve your workbook for $25 by June 24th.
