This week’s “Weekly Bible study” will be held Wednesday December 11th at 1:30 at LLSM. We will be working through the basics of the Christian faith through a different bible passage each week and the questions and answers in A Catechism for Today. It’s a study you can come to regularly and ask the difficult questions and we can grow in God’s word together!
