Little Rock Scripture Study resumes with part two of Genesis

Study starts September 9 and runs through October  7.


A study of the book of Genesis is an invitation not only to contemplate the creation story but to remember with the Israelites their ancestors in faith.

Part Two moves us forward from the time of Abraham to the unfolding of his family in the stories of Isaac and Jacob, as well as the story of Joseph and his brothers and their clans.

Part One of this study covered Genesis 1:1 - 25:18 was held in the spring. It covered the "pre-history" of Israel including the creation accounts, the stories of the fall and the great flood, as well as the story of Abraham and Sarah. 

All are welcome to participate in Part II. The registration fee is $20. If you participated in Part I, no additional fees are needed.
