Pathways to Discipleship

In May we'll look at Nehemiah, a Type A, go-getter in the Bible who saw a project and set out to complete it.  But like many renovation projects, rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem came with challenges. Each week's Sunday lesson will focus on a portion of the book of Nehemiah and the solutions Nehemiah used to address the challenges.

We encourage you to read the whole book of Nehemiah using the suggested reading guide below.
