Dear Friends

I am happy to invite you to be aware that a new SS cell group has started.. I will be working with Mark Everett and others to coordinate this Bible study / fellowship group.

In 14 weeks we’ll cover some basic truths which bind the Seventh-day Adventist Family together. Our textbook will be the Bible supported by the classic work by Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy.

Please see me or Mark Everett with the list of topics. You can also email Shawn Latham at atstar65@me.com for a digital PDF version.

If you want to review some delightful truths, or you would like to bring someone who is inquisitive about what Seventh-day Adventists believe, this may be just what you are looking for.

Warmly,
Pastor John
