Happy Hump Evening! This week’s Bible study will focus on the pros and cons to having regional conferences within the North American Division (mainly, the United States). I know some, or dare I say, many in our generation feel strongly opposed to regional conferences, but we will explore both sides to this heated issue and growing concern (which was not addressed at the past General Conference Session, but postponed to 2015’s GC Session). I have listed some resources below that may find helpful in preparing for the discussion:

Please feel free to bring an appetizer or a drink. See you on Friday!
