Adult Study

NOTICE: Adult study programs have been suspended due to New York State’s restrictions imposed to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Each year a variety of Bible studies and book discussions are offered in the church building’s elegant parlor.  Led by the pastor and/or lay leaders, study groups typically meet one evening each week.  Depending on the curriculum, studies cover between three months and nine months of weekly meetings.   Recent studies have included in-depth explorations of the prophets, the letters of Paul, and the New and Old Testaments more broadly.  The pastor and lay leaders are always open to course study ideas.
