Update: Our presentation of The Star was a great success!  We enjoyed watching the film, listening to Dr. Culley, and discussing what we had seen- the movie sparks not only a lot of thinking about the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, but gave us all a profound sense of appreciation for God's awesome power!
An additional note:  We will be offering expanded sessions for those interested in this presentation; delving into more Biblical detail!  Stay tuned for information regarding dates and times!

Grace Church hosts a Bible Study on Monday mornings, in the Parish Hall.  Our Monday Bible Discussion is an interdenominational group that meets to discuss God's story and His journey with Man from the first verse of Genesis to the last words of Revelation.  While we rarely select a given Book for study, preferring to discuss "themes" such as the Character of God, the Seasons of the Church, The Gospel in The Jewish Feasts, and Understanding the Full Gospel, our time always focuses on knowing upon what/whom our faith stands. (2 Timothy 3:16) 
Our group enjoys open conversation with a good exchange of questions and answers all with the intent to enable participants to defend their Christian faith.  No matter your level of Biblical understanding, I believe you will gain insight from your time with us at Grace Church.  Our mission, in our discussion, is to make the Word of God real in your life. 
Come and enjoy time with us every Monday, from 10:00 until noon,
and grow in His Grace!
In His Grace,  Bob Appleton

It's winter!  As you celebrate events and get-togethers with friends and family, please remember to pray to God for his blessings upon our country.  This country was founded upon Christian values, moral beliefs, strong work ethics and religious freedoms and liberties.  We need to help others understand this, and protect it.  Enjoy your holidays and fun!
