Memory Verse Challenge July 26

This weekPaul Athens

  • Acts Week 16.  Last week in our personal Bible study we saw how the Bereans searched the Scriptures to see if Paul’s teaching lined up. They set a great example for us. The only way to really know God’s Word is through careful examination. This week you’ll study Paul’s speech in Athens and look more closely at God’s intent for all people no matter where and when they’ve lived. This draws us into a deeper understanding of our memory verse for this and next month.
  • Chester Creek Park Ministry.  Wednesday, 6-8:30 PM.
  • Prayer & Praise Night. Thursday, 6:30-7:30 PM.
