Dr. Dan Nigolian will be offering a Bible Study that is a Biblical Anthropology.  The study will be offered from 10:00 to 11:30 each Wednesday morning. We'll be looking into the nature and character of mankind as the Bible reveals it in the early parts of Genesis. What were we like before the Fall of Man?  How did God actually create us to be from the start?  What have we lost now that sin has entered into our World?  Addressing these questions will give us insight into how God would like us to be today.  Come and join us for this fascinating study.”    (This Study will meet Wednesday mornings 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the Library)
