The 100X Men’s Bible Study
The name 100X represents Jesus’ parable of the good soil that produces 100 times what is sown. Our neighborhood 100X Men’s Bible Study has been meeting weekly since 2004, with neighborhood men leading the study for the past 10 years. We have become a diverse group coming together as friends from society’s lower and upper reaches and different ethnic groups. We know that when we look around our small gathering at the Bridge, it is a small glimpse of what Heaven will look like!
