On Thursdays from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., in a continuation of last fall’s study on the prophets, we will watch Volume 2, Prophets and Kings, from the “That the World May Know” video series by Ray Vander Laan.  This series is filmed on location in Israel and highlights the history, geography, and culture of Biblical lands and times.  We will use the companion Discovery Guide ($8) as we learn about God through His prophets.  You can sign up for the studies here.
