Book Study Group (Parents Welcome)

Brad & Selena Dawson | Holly | 6:30pm | Childcare available ($5/family) | Cost of book (Approx. $25) | 2 cats/2 dogs in home | Weekly group

In the beginning, God created the universe and declared it to be good. He created man in His own imagine, male and female, and placed them in a garden, where He also placed two fruit bearing trees:  The Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The fruit of the first tree brings life, the fruit of the second leads unto death. This is where the human story begins—this is where our story begins—with a choice between life and death. But not just life or death, but rather a choice between a way of life and a way of death. Two trees with two different outcomes. From which tree will your parenting be guided? Join us for Growing Kids God’s Way.
