Friday Morning Bible Study—Dynamic Catholic/Allen Hunt study “The Turning Point”


Starts Mar. 29 at 10a.m.—This isn’t your typical Bible study. It's an experience that will introduce you to eight miraculous encounters with Jesus, such as the woman at the well; a man named Nicodemus; the woman caught in adultery; and Lazarus, in the Gospel of John, that will help you encounter Jesus in a new and personal way. The people in these stories were transformed by their encounters with Jesus. By entering into their miraculous stories, you will encounter Jesus in a personal way and develop a deeper relationship with him that will transform your everyday life. You’ll read stories about Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana, Jesus washing the feet of hisdisciples, and Peter’s marvelous redemption after he denies Jesus three times. The Participant Pack cost is $15.95. It includes a study guide, a DVD and the Gospel according to John and can be purchased at https://dynamiccatholic.com/the-turning-pointparticipant-pack. Just the study guide is $12.95 but having the DVD will help you to keep up if you miss a session. Contact Phil Seyfried at philseyf@yahoo.com or 804-677-0619 with any questions.
