Bible Study is one of the greatest ways we grow in our discipleship with Christ and in our relationships with one another. This year there is something for everyone! I’ve often heard, “I can’t go to Bible study, I don’t know enough about the Bible.” Fear not…whether you’ve never really read the Bible or you’ve been taking classes for years, spending time studying God’s word can be transformative: increase your knowledge, develop the discipline of a daily or weekly routine, and learn more about God and one another.

Winter Short Term Studies

Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

Wednesdays, beginning January 9, 2019, 10:30 am, C104

Join Rev. Julie Wright for a study on Bishop Robert Schnase’s book that coincides with our January sermon series. Let’s look at a different posture toward our community, a deliberate outward focus, and a willingness to carry Christ’s love to where people already live, work, and play, rather than hoping people will come to us.

Three Gifts, One Christ

Fridays, beginning January 11, 2019, 12:00 pm, C104

Join Rev. Elizabeth Byrd for a 4-week Epiphany study about the three gifts the magi offered. More than gold, frankincense, and myrrh, these gifts represented the intermingling of light and darkness, truth and falsehood, life and death. Look further, and discover what Jesus offered us.
