The Lost Boys (Men's Bible Breakfast); Wednesdays at 6:30 a.m. at Zion; Currently Meeting via Zoom
The Lost Boys is a bible study group that meets every Wednesday morning. We read from the Bible, choosing a book at a time, and see the faith and actions of people from the Bible. We attempt to see how this can help us on our faith journey. We usually read a chapter a week and then have a lively discussion about it. Members of the group bring in historical aspects of the Bible, and incorporate commentaries as well as multiple versions of the Bible to help our understanding and insight.
Any man is welcome to join us and offer his perspectives and insights on the Word that we study. We have a blog that attempts to summarize our discussions. It is located at http://www.zionlb.org. All are welcome to come.
