Launch Team – Unexplainable Jesus

I joined a new Launch Team. I am working through an eight week study of Luke written by Erica Wiggenhorn. I’ll be posting about the study in the next few weeks. You can preorder the book at your local bookstore. Just ask them for Unexplainable Jesus. It’s due out later this month.

Romans Study on Our Porch

We are studying Romans chapters 6-8. This is a coed group of adults. All over age 45. You might not know that by last night’s discussion. Normally we have great discussions.
