Adult Study

NOTICE: Until further notice, adult study programs will be held virtually, which means participants can join discussions on the internet.

Each year a variety of Bible studies and book discussions are offered, led by the pastor and/or lay leaders. Study groups typically meet weekly.  Depending on the curriculum, studies cover between two months and nine months.   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.
