90-minute meetup. We'll read from the book of Genesis (chapters 27-30). Then we'll watch a 15-minute DVD discussing these chapters in depth. Next we'll read from the book of Matthew (chapters 15-16). We'll have a general discussion about our readings (and any other subjects that members want to discuss), sing hymns, and have coffee and fellowship.
The agenda for this Bible study is posted above. Go to the top menu above, click on "More" then click on "Files."
We meet on the 4th Sunday of each month at 2pm. Our meetings are 90 minutes long. We'll continue our readings and discussions about the Book of Genesis and the Book of Matthew as we continue book by book through the Old and New Testaments.
All our meetings are at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church at 611 Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, Severna Park, Maryland 21146. We will be in Room 208 (the adult education room). Enter the church through the front door; after entering, go down the stairway immediately to your left; at the first landing turn left through the double doors; Room 208 is on your right (across from the vending machines).

I look forward to meeting you all! Have a great week!
Bibles & hymnals: We have Bibles at the church (New Revised Standard Version) - so everyone has the same Bible for reading along. If you have hymns you would like for us to sing, bring copies of the lyrics and we will try! The church has plenty of hymnals for us to use. Thanks.
Cameras/Photos: Please bring your camera or smart phone and help me remember to take some group photos! Thanks!
Books on Near-Death Experiences: If we have time we will discuss some books on faith-affirming near-death experiences, like "Proof of Heaven" by Eben Alexander.

Donations: We'll have a place for you to put donations (only if you wish). All donations are placed in the collection plate for Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church (to help with their programs for the poor and to help maintain their building).
