BRV Baptist Church Fall Ladies’ Study Session

A community ladies’ bible study sponsored by Bear River Valley Baptist Church will begin Thursday, Sept. 5 at 10 a.m.

This fall’s study will be the book of Hebrews. The author presents the absolute supremacy of Jesus Christ as the mediator of God’s grace and God’s full and final revelation. Written to Jewish converts familiar with the Old Testament and tempted to revert to Judaism, the book shows Christ to be superior to the ancient prophets, to angels, to Moses, and to the priestly line of Aaron. Today this book speaks to anyone struggling with the sin of disbelief or spiritual laziness and encourages faith and perseverance in difficult situations.

The study will be meeting in the fellowship hall of Bear River Valley Baptist Church at 119 E. Main in Tremonton. Ladies of all denominations are welcome. For further information, call Annette Williams (435) 257-5992.
