Bible studies and small groups meet to help us learn more about our faith and to grow in our relationship with God and one another.

Wednesday Night Study

Acts of the Apostles, Wednesdays beginning January 17, 6:30 - 7:30 PM in the Conference Room

Led by Rev. Dr. Alan Swartz

The Acts of the Apostles is often viewed as the history of the early church. It is more than that. The Acts of the Apostles (or perhaps better, The Acts of the Holy Spirit) describe how God, the Holy Spirit, led the early Christians in making disciples for Jesus Christ building on the plan modeled by Jesus in the Gospels. Drawing on readings throughout the New Testament, we will look at how the Spirit-led movement spread throughout the Middle East and Europe in the first century and continues to do so today.

Friday Women's Study

Making Sense of the Bible: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today by Adam Hamilton (Friday Women’s study) - Fridays February 16 - March 23, 9:30 - 11:30 AM in room 202

Led by Rev. Janet Baucom

Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible.  Hamilton look at how the Bible came to its present state and tackles frequently asked questions that Christians continue to to struggle with.  He addresses often misunderstood biblical themes and leads readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that they might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

What the Prayers of Jesus Tell Us About the Heart of God by Shane Standford (Friday Women’s study) - Fridays April 13 - May 11, 9:30 - 11:30 AM in room 202

Led by Rev. Janet Baucom

We will explore with Shane Stanford how Jesus’ prayers inform and engage his plans for his disciples, both in the first century and for every century to follow.

Monday Night Bible Study

The Books of Jonah & Nahum - Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 PM, 5 weeks beginning March 19 in the 3rd-floor Assembly Room

Led by Bruce Taylor & Connie Williams

Jonah and Nahum are two of the twelve Minor Prophets of the Old Testament. Although their writings are very different, their prophecies both concern the Assyrian city of Nineveh. We will learn powerful lessons about God's sovereignty, mercy, compassion, wrath, and just judgment. Things have not changed so much in the world nor in the minds and actions of men
since Jonah and Nahum were written. More importantly, God has not changed. There is more application to our lives than you might expect in this study. Please contact Connie Williams in advance to sign up and receive your study notebook.
