Leviticus Reading Plan - PCO Image

Leviticus Reading Plan


Leviticus - yep that’s the Old Testament book you usually skip over when reading the Bible. It is full of smoke and fire and blood — very messy indeed. However, there’s a life code described between the written lines, a life code of order and worship. Learn how to read, study, and experience Leviticus, a ancient book for contemporary spirituality.

Our next event is Saturday, June 5 with a Parent Orientation on Sunday, May 23. The deadline to register is May 17.


Women's Bible Study


If you’ve ever found yourself overwhelmed by a mountain of diapers, the stresses of coping with a rebellious teen, or the loneliness of an empty nest, remember that each of these is only a season we are passing through. No matter your season of life, now is your time to thrive. Join us for "Seasons of a Women's Life" Bible study with sisters Chrystal Hurst and Priscilla Shirer.
