Adult Discipleship Opportunities:

Bible Studies

Throughout the year we offer a variety of short-term discipleship classes as well as long term studies.   

Chewing on the Word…

This is a drop-in Bible study that will preview the scripture lessons for the coming Sunday’s sermons. Each week’s discussion will generally incorporate a passage from the Old Testament, a Psalm, a Gospel lesson and an Epistle. Your pastors will tag-team this hour of lively discussion, beginning with a brief overview of the historical context of each passage. A time of discussion among participants will make connections between the texts and explore how understanding these verses can make a difference in the way we live our daily lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. You may just hear YOUR contribution included in that Sunday’s sermon!
