MEET GOD MID WEEK | 5 JULY | 8.00 PM
Dr Poulson will begin a new series of studies entitled, THE LIFE AND REIGN OF KING SOLOMON. O.T. History is unique. Neither God, nor His human Authors, are concerned to record facts alone. It is the meaning and interpretation of those facts that is important. Thus, there is a continuing application of eternal principles that makes the writing as vital for US as it was for those who first read or heard the message. This class is scheduled for 5 July – 11 October. There is no fee of any kind, but please notify us of your intention so that we can print sufficient notes for handout.We will inform you of the PLACE as soon as it is confirmed.
