Pastor’s Bible Study: BOLD AND COURAGEOUS: JOSHUA AND THE NEXT GENERATION

Wednesdays  | 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM | Covenant Hall

Thursdays | 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM | Covenant Hall or Livestream via www.fpcsanantonio.org 

After decades in the Wilderness, God fulfilled his covenant and sent the people into the land He had promised. But, it was not easy. There was work to do and they were opposed at every turn. The people learned that following the way of the Lord is always a challenge. So the Lord gave them a new leader to guide them, and charged Him to be bold and courageous as they moved into their new home. This Winter the Pastor’s Bible Study (PBS), led by Dr. Bob Fuller, will grapple with and join Joshua and the people of Israel as they move into the promised land and fight for their physical and spiritual survival. Contact: Lellen Lane: lellenlane@aol.com, (210) 860-1395 (to be placed in small groups for discussion following the general session)
