Women's Bible Study at Indian Rocks 2019


 RightNow Media’s The Gospel of Mark, featuring Francis Chan.

Beginning Tuesday, February 26

Classes available: Tuesdays at 9:00am and 7:00pm and Wednesdays at 3:15pm and 6:45pm

This 11-week Bible study, filmed on location in Israel, is meant to be more than an intellectual analysis of Mark’s gospel.
It’s a journey intended to lead you along in the footsteps of Jesus as he walks the road from Galilee to Jerusalem.


 This study will ask you to engage your heart and your hands as well—
feeling the full impact of Mark’s writing as well as putting into action the challenges his gospel makes to his reader. 
The questions are designed to encourage engagement with the videos and reflection on the teachings.
At the end of the journey—and at the end of this book—you’ll have a very important question to answer:
Will you follow Jesus?
