From Creation to the Cross

Most Christians don't quite know what to do with the first half of the Bible. Some are fascinated by the historical sweep of the Old Testament. Others are blessed by its poetry. Still others focus on its prophecies. But what is at the heart and soul of the Old Testament? You’re invited to be part of a lively 9 week overview of the Old Testament scriptures. Special emphasis will be placed on how the Old and New Testaments fit together to reveal the plans of God.
