Pastor’s Bible Study

As a full-time retiree, Pastor Bob Spagnuolo now has opportunity to conduct a Bible study on the first and third Thursday mornings each month.

This is a time of informal lessons and discussions of a study book.

We trust these discussions will be of benefit to you in your spiritual journey!
