Monday Night Bible Study
Our Monday night bible study meets on Zoom from 6:30 to 8:00pm. We have studied Mark, Genesis, Acts, and are currently studying John. We learn so many new things as we look at each verse in the context of the entire book. This study is led by Pastor Sally who provides a study guide and utilizes maps and pictures to supplement our reading. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the bible in a brand-new way!

Men’s Bible Study
On Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. our pastor leads a men’s group of our church in a detailed exploration of the bible. Our virtual Zoom format allows for active participation by members living around the country. Content of our study usually focuses on one book of the Bible at a time but occasionally we study the scriptural text of the sermon for the upcoming Sunday worship service. Our congenial biblical learning experience lasts about an hour and builds a strong bond of fellowship and deeper appreciation in our faith.
