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.

Thoughtful Thursday Bible Study (Thursdays, 9:30-11 AM)

The Thoughtful Thursday Bible Study is on summer vacation and will resume in the fall. The first study will be “The New Testament You Never Knew.” This 8-session class, taught by N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird, is DVD-based, exploring the context, purpose, and meaning of the story of
God. Through reading the New Testament we continually discover that God indeed keeps his promises, but those promises don’t always look like what people expected. Especially when it comes to Jesus. So, come join the journey with N.T. Wright and Michael Bird and they will help
you understand the New Testament you never knew.

We plan to offer more studies in the future.  Updated information will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
