The Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church will host a Bible teaching conference Sept. 11-13 with Dr. Dominic Aquila, president of New Geneva Theological Seminary in Colorado Springs.
The theme of the conference is “Reading the Bible as Jesus Did.” The conference is free of charge.
Reading the Bible as Jesus did means that we put on the lens he used in Luke 24 to understand God’s redemptive revelation in both Old and New Testaments, organizers said. The community is invited for this interesting and thought-provoking series of studies. The conference and meals are free of charge.
