Moses:  In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet

Join the Koinonia Class and Adam Hamilton as he travels from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, the Nile, the Red Sea and the wilderness exploring the sites of Moses’ life. Using historical information, archaeo-logical data, and biblical text, Hamilton guides us in the footsteps of this reluctant prophet who grew in his relationship with God and by the end of life had successfully fulfilled the role he was given.  We will explore how Moses grew in his relationship with God, and how you can overcome your own hesitancy to act boldly for the Lord.  This short term study will taught by Patti Connelly begin on October 22 in room 123. Hope you can join us.
