Friday Iron Men Bible Study will begin again on Aug. 2

Pastor Luhring

Iron Men’s Bible Study meets every Friday morning from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. in Adult Ed Room A. The topic for a couple weeks: “Stuff They Didn’t Teach Me In Sunday School”- Matthew and Mark’s Gospels with Bruce Wurdeman. The four hundred-year period of transition between the Old and New Testaments witnessed significant changes in Israel’s history. In Palestine groups like the Pharisees, Sadducees, Zealots, Essenes, and others filled the stage. Superpowers like the Persians, Greeks, and Romans were the dominant geopolitical players. Into this milieu came Jesus, and the Word Incarnate, along with His disciples, would change the world forever.

Come join this Friday morning Iron Men’s Bible study with Pastor Luhring, Rick Baldwin, Bob Heyman, Walt Smith, Jim Schatz, Tom Koppenhofer, Steve Zachrich, Charlie Koch, Dr. Don VanVlerah, Bob Dawson and Randy Ward.
