"Coming to Know God”
His presentation will focus on our ultimate objective beautifully stated in John 17:3. He has asked that everyone please bring their scriptures, digital or printed. He said to me, “I'll keep them attentive with a lively discussion of very important doctrine.” This should be a wonderful, interesting and inspiring evening!!
