Old Testament U
FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 2021 FROM 6:30-7:30PM
& SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 2021 FROM 9-11AM
It can be a challenge for those of us with 21st Century eyes to read between the lines of the Old Testament. That's why we are hosting Old Testament U which will help us have a better understanding on our Christian heritage and lineage. What’s the meaning of burnt offerings and thanksgiving offerings? Plus, how did we get the Old Testament writings, given that they were written many years ago? Dr. Jody Owens, professor at Johnson University and one of Pastor Wayne’s go-to-guys on Old Testament study, is coming to Decatur to give us insight and information that will impact your walk with Christ, as Jesus’ story is influenced by Old Testament literature. RSVP below for this FREE class by Thursday, August 5.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 15, 2021 AT 4:30PM
You are invited to Hymnoscope, a special worship event where we come together and sing our favorite hymns of our faith. Our Worship Arts team, ensemble, and Arts Academy students will lead us in worship. You’ll have the opportunity to request songs and worship together.
