PRE-LENTEN CLASS FOR MEN AND WOMEN:  Living Under God’s Umbrella
Will God’s judgement fall upon the USA?  When a disaster twice as large as 9/11 hits the US, where will you be?  When an EMP attack hits our grid, where will you be?  It is a fact that most nations have chemicals for warfare.  If used, where will you be?  It is my prayer for each of us that we will be Under the Umbrella of God.  Scripture reading, teaching and discussion meets today at 9:15 am and next Wednesday, January 3 at 7:00 pm.  Do come and share your knowledge.
