Bible Journaling

Tuesdays, October 13 - November 17

(6 sessions)

10:00am - 11:30am, Heritage Hall 

Led by Martha Piesko

Bible journaling is an exciting way to engage with Scripture. It can transform the way you spend time in the Word and it all begins in the margins of the Bible. With Bible journaling you will find a creative and fresh approach to the age-old discipline of Bible reading. With pen in hand, you can visually capture Scripture, and meditate on God's Word.  You don't have to be an artist. All that matters is that you're willing to experience God in new and creative ways.


Each participant will receive their own journaling Bible, and supply kit.


The cost of this workshop is $15.00 per person. All health and safety protocols will be observed, so space is very limited.


Please contact Martha, by October 8 to register.
