Bible Studies & Small Groups

As with everything in our world today, the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way we are organizing our studies and groups. During the fall and spring, we typically offer Wednesday in the Neighborhood groups, which meet in different people's homes around the area for a meal, Bible study and connection. And our Sunday School classes would normally meet at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

We also encourage everyone to "band together" and become part of a small group. Groups can be as small as three people, and you can meet in person or electronically. Learn more about banding together
