Lenten Bible study is filling up.  24 Hours That Changed the World might just change your world as you consider these events.  Walk with Adam Hamilton in the very places where Christ walked on His final day.  

In his inspiring book 24 Hours That Changed the World, Adam Hamilton guides us, step by step, through the last day of Jesus’ life. With the video we will travel with Hamilton to visit the sites where those events took place. We will walk with Jesus on His final day. Sit beside Him at the Last Supper. Pray with Him in Gethsemane. Follow Him to the cross. Desert Him. Deny Him.

Join Adam Hamilton and Pastor Ron on this magnificent journey during the season of Lent. Two sessions will be held, one at 10:00 am and the other at 6:30 pm. Books available for $10; see Pastor Ron or Beth Snyder. Space is limited so contact the church office or Pastor Ron if you would like to experience 24 Hours That Changed the World.
