Ecumenical Lenten Saturday morning Bible study planned
BROOKINGS – Al and Alice Lunden will host a free six-week 10 a.m. Saturday Lenten Bible study in the Cooper Room of the Brookings Public Library beginning on Feb. 15. The topic will be “Jesus’ Alpha and Omega Miracles, His First and His Last.”
Christian spiritual empowerment and encouragement from Jesus’ Omega Miracle have neither ceased or dwindled in nearly 2,000 years, though some doubt. We must continue spiritual encouragement as Paul wrote to the Christians at Corinth and John to the seven churches in Asia Minor.
This Bible study will invite open discussion of the presence and power of Jesus’ Holy Spirit during the three Saturdays in February and will involve Jesus’ first miracle in March.
This free ecumenical Bible study is intended to sfrengthen faith in all Christian churches rather than to favor any church or denomination. Please consider Saturday morning participation.
