*Last* Life and Faith Course for internationals – tonight at the BCM

Note – This will be last Bible study at the BCM this semester. We know people are interested in a Bible study for internationals during the summer. We will talk about this tonight. 

Special Bible study opportunity!

Dr Rick Wright will teach a basic introduction to the Bible during the Spring semester *tonight* Monday from 7:00-7:45 p.m.*  Each class will start after the internationals dinner at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) at Louisiana State University (corner of Highland Road and Chimes). Dinner + Bible study! Great combination!  

Last semester Dr Wright gave students a basic overview of the story of the Bible from Creation to Jesus and the Church. This semester the Bible studies will cover the basic teachings and practices of the Christian faith. If this is the story that the Bible tells then what do we believe? and how do we live? Dr Wright has been a pastor for internationals at University Baptist Church for 14 years. He has taught courses at Cornell University and Tulane University and now teaches Biblical Hebrew at Louisiana State University. The classes will use simple English. Internationals and Americans are both welcome.

If you have a Bible bring it. If you do not have a Bible let us know and we can give you one for free.

Events for internationals at Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) this Thursday
