Mark Allan Powell Sessions

As an introduction to our Assembly, we have collaborated with Dr. Mark Allan Powell and he lead us in four online Bible study sessions around our Assembly theme. The first session we considered our overall theme, “Like Good Stewards”, and the following three sessions considered the subthemes of stewarding creation, offering, and justice & peace. These sessions were held on May 7, 14, 21 and 28 at 7:00 p.m.
