Picture the Passion: A Study of the Book of Zechariah—What is the turning point in the entire history of the world, so huge an event that it impacts you every moment of every day—giving peace when the world offers little peace, giving hope when you feel hopeless, giving strength when you are weak, giving joy when sadness surrounds? Answer: The Passion of our Lord Jesus. What a thrill to study the pictures of the prophet Zechariah which point to the reality that makes all the difference in our life! Join the study on Sundays at 9 or 10:15 a.m., Feb. 14- Mar. 28, 2021. Each Sunday’s focus is listed below:
