A Study of the Book of Revelation

Led by: Chuck Bongiorno

Have you ever read the book of Revelation and struggled to make sense of it? Who is this woman clothed with the sun, and the moon? And why does the enormous red dragon with seven heads want to kill her? Who are two beasts that come from the sea and the earth? And what is this required mark on the hand or forehead all about? If you are looking for answers to these questions, then come and join us as we dive into the book of Revelation, and study its relevance for us today.

Join us for an eight-week study as Pastor and Author J.D. Greear digs in to the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse. He says that if your coworkers, neighbors, friends, and family are going to encounter Jesus, it's going to be from your mouth. 

Each week we meet in a large group to view the video. Then we break up into small groups to discuss it and pray for one another. We are a friendly bunch of women who share a desire to study the Word of God and to make new friends. There is NO HOMEWORK, but you are free to dig deeper if you wish.
