We will use Todd Outcalt’s book Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem for this study. Our guiding text for this week’s discussion is Luke 1:39-50.

They assist community members in need year round with financial assistance, job training, counseling, educational resources, support groups, relieving experiences of homelessness, and emergency response. Supporting their work with our Christmas Eve Offering makes us a part of the incredible work they are doing!
