Brothers And Sisters In Christ
On April 28 we will begin a five week
series for “When God
Doesn’t Fix It” (“Learning
to walk in God’s plans instead of our own”).
The presenter is Laura Story. Her life took an unexpected turn when her
husband, Mark, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The news brought
Laura’s dreams of a fairy-tale life to an end. Yet it also brought her
a deeper intimacy with God as she turned to him and allowed him to
rewrite her story. In this five session curriculum, Laura shows that
while God may not fix every broken thing in our lives, he will lead us
to a place where we are better because of it.
Loyal Bible Class

International Lesson Series: Uniform Series in a

understanding the Christian faith, being under the Lordship of Jesus
Christ and the fellowship of His Spirit.
This Spring quarter is concentrated on
the theme “Discipleship
and Mission” and study of Scripture passages from Matthew,
Mark, Luke, Acts, and Romans.
