Great place to learn - great time to start!
onWORD off to a Great Start!
Dr. Willy Muller kicked off the E P Wahl Centre's new onWORD series with a great overview of the book of Acts, and the series will continue Tuesdays at Taylor. Everyone is welcome, and there is no charge.
Dr. Muller has taught on the Book of Acts many times and in many countries since his first teaching series in 1942. Over the past eight years, he has devoted himself to a study of this history of the first Christians; now, at age 85, he speaks with authority and humility.
onWORD is a weekly journey through scripture, and a variety of teachers will cover many different topics in the months ahead. We hope you will join us for an exploration of the riches of God's Word -- there is no cost to attend, and everyone is welcome.
We ask that you register when you attend for the first time, as Taylor endeavors to keep accurate records of all attendees at our educational events.
