These and other questions will be answered in a 21-week course taught by Pastor Rick Moe starting on Sunday, Jan. 11th, at 10:55am in rooms W129/130.

Pastor Rick Moe is currently taking us through a series on Paul's missionary journeys as recorded in the Book of Acts, chapters 11-28. We will learn not only where he went, but also why. And through the use of pictures, we will also see many of the places where Paul and his associates visited (Iconium, Lystra, Derbe, Ephesus, Corinth, Philippi, and Athens). God used Paul as His point person to spread the Gospel beyond the borders of Israel and the Jewish people. For this, we owe Paul a great debt of gratitude. Cost: NONE.

Visit our PrimeTimers webpage at: LINK for more info. Because of space considerations at our socials, we prefer for those who attend to be "close" to the PrimeTimers ages of 60+.
