Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church to hold Bible study:
Explorer’s Bible Study will begin at 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, September 5 at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church, 951 Lincoln Ave. in Jacksonville.

The study this year will be spent in the Book of Exodus. Classes run from early September 2023 to late April 2024. Come join us as we learn about Moses and him leading his Israelite people out of bondage to the Promised Land.

People from many different churches lead and attend Explorer’s Bible Study classes because they feel it both complements the work of their home church and helps them mature in their relationship with God.

All involved in Explorer’s are encouraged to attend and participate in the full life of their home church.

As class members grow in faith and in their knowledge through in-depth study of God’s Word, they become more motivated and better equipped for service in their local church.

Call 217-473-4515 to register.
