St. Andrews by the Sea Episcopal Church | Port Isabel, TX
This 10-week study, developed by the Rev. Nicky Gumbel, former rector of Holy Trinity Brompton, looks at Paul's letter to the Philippians. Each week, we will receive a sermon based on a section of the letter, and a link to a video in the church newsletter. On Tuesday, from 5:30pm - 6:30pm there will be a class for those who wish to go deeper in discussion. This program will run from Sunday, September 11 through November 13. The first Bible Study will begin on Wednesday, September 14, and then continue each of the following weeks on Tuesday.
