PASTOR’S BOOK STUDY: MAKING SENSE OF THE BIBLE
New Study Begins Thursday, June 14 at 5:30 p.m.
and Continues Each Thursday in the Hackler Lounge.

This study will be based on the book Making Sense of the Bible by Adam Hamilton.  We will be looking at questions such as - How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? Is the Bible ever wrong? We will also be spending time on some of the questions people frequently ask such as – Why does God seem so violent in the Old Testament?  Can you believe in both the Bible and evolution? 

Please sign up for this study by May 31 on the sheet located at the Welcome Desk during worship or by emailing Pastor Kim at kimwisecup@summitumc.org.
