New Men's Early Morning Bible Study --- begins Tuesday, February. 4. Men - don’t miss this latest Bible Study, The Great Deceiver by Pastor Michael Newman. This four-session Bible study, led by Pastor Michael Newman, examines the most perverse character in Scripture: Satan. "Beast," "accuser," and "evil one," this "roaring lion", as the Apostle Peter calls him, is adept at changing his appearance and cunning in his deceit. When it comes to Satan it's a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners approach.
