Online Bible Studies

Hi Church,
I invite you to join me in studying God’s Word online using the You Version Bible app (Bible.com). Each study begins on a specific date, but you are welcome to start a little earlier or later.  You can read on your own, but when you comment, the whole group can see what you wrote and respond. I hope you will participate, and I pray that you would be blessed with wisdom, growth, and new energy through the study and interaction with God’s word. 

Through Christ Jesus, our Lord, Amen

Frank Baik
