Bible

In the Beginning; In the End

Genesis and Revelation. The start of all things and the end of all things . . . as we know it. Few places in scripture are more controversial and have more divergent opinion then the beginning and the end! We will spend ten weeks — five on the beginning and five on the end — studying what the Word of God has to say about where this all came from and where we are all headed.

Begins Wed, Sept 12 | 6:30p-8p, Eden Prairie Campus Room 259
