MEET GOD MID WEEK | TUES 11 SEP | 8.00 PM – 9.00 PM | RM 310 C & D

The returnees from captivity were discouraged and distracted from the task of rebuilding the temple. So they started “doing their own thing” until the Lord raised up the prophet Haggai to encourage them to get back to work!! Come study this message whose principle still applies to us in the 21st century.
