From September through November our pastors will lead us through a study of the first book of the Bible, Genesis chapters 1-12 in which we can find answer to questions like Why is there so much hate in the world? What does God think about marriage or the government? Genesis gives us a sound foundation for everything we believe and is the key to understanding all of the Bible.
