Lost In Translation – Wednesday Evening Bible Study

September to January 2021/22 7 p.m. | on Zoom

Lost in Translation, our evening Bible Study for 2021/22, features various leaders from the YP family who will take turns leading us in a study of Biblical phrases that are commonly used in our English language. We will explore not only their popular usage but also their Biblical origins and seek to identify that meaning at the heart of it all.

Our studies will begin Wednesday, September 29th. We invite all who plan to join our study to click here to register online, or contact the church office at office@yorkminsterpark.com Once registered you will be sent a link.
