URC will be hosting a Biblical Theology Workshop for Women with Nancy Guthrie on March 4-5, 2022. Over three sessions, Nancy Guthrie will help us to get to know our Bibles better as we learn to identify major themes that run from Genesis to Revelation. We won’t simply be sitting and listening. We’ll be interacting with each other and working together to trace particular themes. The three sessions promise to be energetic and fun. They include:
- Telling the Bible’s Big Story
- Tracing the Bible’s Main Themes
- Making the Bible’s Intended Connections
While we are the hosts, the workshop is being advertised nationally, and women from around the country will be looking for a workshop in their area. we don’t want the workshop to fill up before women from our church have the chance to register! Registration opens January 1, 2022
We’re looking forward to having Nancy here to help us understand our Bibles better so that we can more clearly grasp what God is saying to us through his Word. And we look forward to having lots of guests join us for what should be a memorable day of fun and learning together.
Join us January 14-15, 2022 at Camp Geneva Retreat Center in Holland, MI for our URC Intergenerational Men’s Retreat.
