Letters of John – Led by Dan Herrmann in the Fellowship Hall
Although short in length, the Apostle John’s three letters are very rich in content. These letters are full of encouragement but also plenty of challenge. John explains how to have fellowship with God through his One and Only Son, Jesus, and he teaches us the importance of loving one another. In addition, John writes about other important topics, such as warning against false teaching and the importance of speaking the truth in love – things we can all be reminded of from time to time. This Bible study will be challenging, fun and interactive, and will help to lead us to a deeper understanding of the truths contained within John 1, 2, and 3.

Then this is the class for you. Join Pastor Nate upstairs in Room 300 to learn how to read the Bible and deepen your walk with Christ.
