THIS PANDEMIC LIFE
MAY 31 – JUNE 14
Our everyday lives have changed, with a return to ‘normal’ hard to imagine. When dealing with heightened anxiety and uncertainty, our stress levels rise. In these times, it is important for us to seek God and wisdom in the Bible. Using the Book of James, we will look at what the Bible tells us about graciously walking through hardships and challenges.
Join in a conversation and check-in on June 14 via Zoom. These check-ins offer you a chance to see others, enjoy conversation and continue building community virtually. Zoom links will be sent out by email. If you haven’t received them, email Jake McGlothin at email@example.com.
