Adults, Are you ready for a journey?

Rev. Judy will be leading a 6-session video Bible Study at 9:15 on Sunday mornings based on the book ‘The Rock, the Road and the Rabbi’. By video, you will visit the sites in Israel and Rabbi Jason Sobel, a messianic Jew who follows Jesus, will share teachings and resources that reconnect ancient Jewish wisdom with the teachings of the New Testament. Hopefully, with the fascinating details, the story of the New Testament will come alive for you.
