  • Various service projects
  • A guided tour in the Metropolitan Museum with a focus on the images of Christ

  • GA will host the group on Saturday, Jan. 10, 6-9. (A catered meal will be provided.) The evening will end with a worship service.

Daily Bible Verse

  • Matthew 15:32-39

    34Jesus asked them, "How many loaves have you?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." 35Then ordering the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36he took the seven loaves and the fish; and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37And all of them ate and were filled; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full.
