Adult Study

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.

We offer the the following studies:

An in-depth introductory course to Bible study, using a guide titled Disciple 1: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study, will meet every Friday from 9:15 AM to 11:30 AM. It’s a 34-week overview of the entire Bible .  The group has just finished the section on the Gospels and will complete the Disciple 1 study around Easter.   Class meets 9:15 – 11:30 every Friday, all are welcome.  Watch here for the announcement of the fall study topic!  For more information, call the church office at 631-261-0804.

Aside from Bible studies, St. Paul’s organizes book studies:
