They shock us; they shake us; they compel us to change. You can’t escape life’s interruptions, but you can change your perspective on them. Dive into the study of Jonah by Priscilla Shirer and discover that what you see as an interruption may truly be God’s divine invitation to a life so much bigger than you can imagine. This will be a six week study continuing on Thursday, September 27 with three sessions to choose from, 9:30 AM or 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Center, or 8:30 PM on Facebook Live for all who registered.
