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. However, these types of gatherings on still on hold for now.

We still 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


    Bruce Case will be leading an eight-week Bible study of Exodus starting April 11!  Bruce says, "I love finding great writers who can teach on a seminary level but write in a way that holds your attention!"  Bruce will use multiple sources to teach this class, but he recommends one book - Exodus for Normal People. If you wish you knew more about the Bible and how to get more out of it, this resource is for you!  

    Although we will gather together safely, we'll also offer Zoom access to anyone who wants to be a part of the study but is not ready to join in person. There will be two different class meeting times:

    Sundays at 5 p.m., beginning April 11 and ending May 30 (Room 303)

    Wednesdays at noon, beginning April 14 and ending June 2 (Youth Chapel)

    This class has been developed to assist parents who are divorced, who never married but live separately or who live together but do not always agree about parenting. Over the six-week class, parents will develop skills to communicate and work together towards raising an independent child. Topics will include a discussion of personality types, various types of relationships, raising strong children, psychological effects of divorce on children, decision making, communication, discipline, alienation and beyond. There is no registration fee or other charge for this class; however, appropriate opportunities for love offerings may be provided.

    Unfortunately, childcare will not be available during this session.

  • monday lunch group

    Mondays at noon / Via Zoom / Led by Brian Ford

    Take a break in your day to share a meal and continue walking together on the spiritual path. The group typically begins their time together with a period of silence before 20 minutes of a video or audio study, followed by conversation for the rest of the hour. 

    The group occasionally meets on Fridays instead of Mondays. Search for the private group "Monday Lunch Group" on Facebook for more information and to learn of date changes.
