NEW Co-ed Small Group featuring The God Anthology

god

Looking for a more God-centric and less topical approach to group Bible study?

There is nothing more important than a right understanding of God. Every day we have fears, concerns, and demands that distract our lives and compete for our attention. Before long, we begin to filter God’s character and nature through our experiences, creating a god in our image. God Anthology is about undoing this — stripping away the false picture that we have painted and restoring a proper vista of who God is based on what he has revealed to us in Scripture.

God Anthology by Mark Batterson guides groups on an exploration into six of the critical aspects of God’s character and personhood: Merciful, Holy, Mysterious, Jealous, Sovereign, Incomparable.

When: Thursdays, starting April 3; 12-1 PM
Where: Riverfront Plaza
West Tower, 1st Floor
901 East Byrd Street (Next to BBT Auditorium in Conference Room #2 – the conference room next to Life Force)
Cost: Purchase a copy of The God Anthology by Mark Batterson
Register: Contact Lisa Rattner at lrattner@needleseye.org
