Unpuzzled - Ephesians Study

Ephesians

In-person class

Wednesdays, Jan. 11-Feb. 15
6:30-7:30 p.m.

The primary focus from Jan. 11-Feb. 15 will be on Wednesday Night Discussion Groups that will discuss The Seedbed Daily Text: Ephesians. The sermon series to start the year is also on Ephesians, so the hope is that these groups will help promote unity, consistency, and community while also encouraging daily Scripture reading! 

Trinity Hall will be set up with multiple round tables and participants will walk in, select a table, and have a discussion with their fellow tablemates led by a table leader. It will be a more casual atmosphere than a normal study but will still provide a reflective environment. 

The resource is available on Kindle here. Hard copies can be found here. A limited number of books are available for free. Please email Director of Discipleship and Connections Allison Nye to request a book.
