New Young Adult Bible Study – Prodigal God
The story of the Prodigal Son is one that has particularly captivated individuals since Jesus told it in the 1st century AD. But a fresh look at the story will help us realize that God shows his grace both to the rebel as well as the law-keeper. Join us as we study this parable on Thursday nights for the next six weeks.
