Sunday 05.21.17 (living to die well)

This Sunday in our study through Ecclesiastes, we’ll take a look at 3:16-4:3 and how we learn to live well so one day we might die well. Then on Sunday evening, we’ll have a special “ask anything” session–come ready with questions about the Bible, theology, and faith and we will do our best to answer what we can. We hope to see you there!
