Bible teaching, fellowship meeting planned

A teaching and fellowship meeting will take place every Sunday at 11:30 a.m. approximately 4 miles down Funny River Road, call 907-262-9808 for directions.

Learn how to read and understand the Bible. Topics include what parts of the Bible are written for your understanding and what is written directly to you; how to receive and believe — a person can never rise above more than what they have been taught; what is the love of God, how do you love; who are the gospels written to; and how to understand the 7 epistles, Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians. These are power packed teachings that enable you to live a more than abundant life by getting rid of sin consciousness, guilt, and mainly fear. These are taught in the home and kept small for a better personal learning. Those who want to learn are welcome.
