The Prophets - Old Testament, New Testament, and Beyond - This presentation has been postponed. We will update you here when new dates are avaialble.

The Old Testament tells powerful and, sometimes, bizarre stories of prophets who spoke God's word to the Nation of Israel. We hear prophets in the New Testament also, but rarely identify them as such. Some believe prophesy ended with the closing of scripture. But it did no. Ivy Cavegn will take us on a captivating exploration of prophesy that reaches back thousands of years, continues today and has extraordinary relevance for us now. This 3 part series is scheduled for the following dates:


Each date has a morning session starting at 9:30 am and an evening session that starts at 7:00 pm. There's no registration or fee for this series, just drop in for learning and discussion.
