Covenant Bible Experience : Poets

Join us this Fall for an eight week Covenant Bible Experience as we study the art of wise living and heartfelt worship from the Poets: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Lamentations. Throughout the ages, God speaks and we respond. Together let's anchor our hearts in God's living Word for 40 days as we listen for God to speak and, like the Poets, learn to respond. 

When & Where: Tuesday Evenings, September 25th-November 13th, 7:00-8:30pm @ Van Norman's Home (Columbia Heights)

Poets book without chapter and verse breaks may be purchased here for $13.50 (try it!). Using your own Bible works too. Free daily audio readings are also available. This CBE group will be led by Pastor Laura. Please email her by September 16 if you'd like to participate in this eight week small group.

Supporting materials are available on the Immerse Poets' website.
