“Invitation to Psalms” Study Group Online

Vincent Church is having a study entitled “Invitation to Psalms” based on a book by Michael Jinkins.  It is being held via Zoom video on Monday mornings at 9:30 a.m.  The study will help participants make a deeper connection to the world of the Psalms so that these well-known scriptures can help you give voice to all aspects of our human experience---joy, faith, uncertainty and sorrow.  To participate, contact the Church Office for more information.
