NEW BIBLE STUDY: Jonah and the Amazing Ways of God

Begins Wednesday, October 16, 7:00 p.m., Youth and Activities Building
The Book of Jonah is one of a kind.  It’s called a book of prophecy, but the only sermon offered is one line long.  It’s the story of a prophet, but this prophet wants nothing to do with the job.  It’s about a well-placed big fish, and it’s about some really bad people who are loved by God.  But, mostly, it’s about the God who loves those bad people, who calls that reluctant prophet, who is the Lord of all creation and cares about the fish (large and small), the cattle in the field, and everything else.  And it all ends with a question. Join Pastor Mark Westmoreland starting October 16 for a five-week look at this fascinating book and what it has to say to us today. Find other Bible studies and Small Groups here.
