Bible study W3031 Tues 12:15pm, Thanksgiving invitation, and more!

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,

James writes in his letter to the dispersed church, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. (Ja 1:17) Thankful for a God who is immutable, unchanging, steadfast, constant - and a very generous giver of good and perfect gifts. Praying that today we can have our eyes open to see how he is working in and through and around us, especially as second term begins.

Tomorrow (Tues Oct 29), join us at 12:15pm in Room W3031 for another Flourishing in Grad School Bible study on Luke 5:1-11, led by Rachel Stinson.
