4.) Fresh Start Bible Study
6:45 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. Nov. 13 InterFaith Center, Belknap Campus
Free to all
Do you live in freedom? Freedom for some is joyful. For others, ironically, it seems to bring ultimate bondage because of choices. Join us Wednesday morning to discuss steps that lead to a life of freedom that is eternally rewarding. It’s a great time for UofL community to come together for fellowship, encouragement, Bible study and prayer. UPCOMING EVENT: Thanksgiving Luncheon Pot Luck, Nov. 20, 11:30 a.m. - 12:45 pm. We hope to see you at the InterFaith Center. Use the east entrance.

The photo with the most likes from each partner organization (UofL, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Metro and Jefferson Community and Technical College) wins the photographer a recycled content gift bag or basket with items donated by QRS Recycling, Office Max, JCPS, JCTC and UofL.
