Lenten Study Began February 18th - It's not too late to join!

The 2015 short-term Lenten studying the book “The God We Can Know - Exploring the ‘I Am’ Sayings of Jesus” by Rob Fuquay. The study will complement Rev. Spencer’s sermon series, but is not a companion study. This is a DVD based study, filmed on location in the Holy Land, which allows the student to see the places where Jesus stood while disclosing his identity, and in what context he spoke each “I Am.”
The study began February 18th with facilitator Rev. Ben Tandy. Each session will last approximately one hour. The study book cost is $7; there is an e-book available online at
