Bible Studies

Men's Bible Study

Thursday mornings at 8:00 a.m.
All men interested in coming together to study the Bible are welcome. Various topics and verses are discussed and we're there to learn. You don't need to be a bible scholar and there are no tests. Usually some humor is shared to start the day followed by prayer concerns and there is always hot coffee and treats to munch on while the study is in progress. Join us!

Bag Lunch Bible Study

We study the Bible text appointed each week in our Common Lectionary for Sunday worship. This gives us time to think together about the themes for worship and daily life we find in these passages. This also means we will be looking at the same Bible passages used in many churches. And finally this is a Bible study where you never need to work ahead; it is fresh every time.

Care Center Bible Study

Tuesdays 9:30 a.m.
We meet each Tuesday to read the lessons for the next Sunday. We discuss what these lessons mean in our lives. Join your friends at the Care Center for an opportunity to gather around God’s Word. On the second Tuesday each month we hold a special service of Holy Communion in place of the Bible study.
