TIME: Sundays 6:00pm
GROUP: Coed Ages 18+

A study of the fourth book of Moses, called Numbers, may seem like a strange book of the Bible to study. However, the Hebrew title for this book is In the Wilderness. After Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River, He spent 40 days in the wilderness. Three themes that run through Numbers are the character of God, Israel being the people of God as the people who reflect God's holiness and faithfulness in their lives, and the Promised Land as it was given to Israel by the Lord.

Is $129.99 really worth it? Dave Ramsey assures us it is. Following the seven baby steps you will learn, Ramsey states, "The average person finds $332 after their first month of budgeting. In the first 90 days, the average person pays off $5,300 in debt and puts $2,700 into savings. And that’s just in the first three months! Imagine what you can do after that!”
