Holy days discussed April 3 in study

ADA — The United Church of God, publisher of The Good News Magazine, hosts a public Bible study titled God’s Plan of Salvation Revealed in the Annual Holy Days. Did the Apostle Paul teach gentile churches to observe the annual holy days? Do the annual holy days have meaning for Christians today?

These questions will be discussed at a free and informative Bible study at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, at Ada Public Library.
