Bible Study

Second Wednesday of the month, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Contact Judy Arnold for more information.

Led by Reverend Judy Arnold, Associate Pastor, this informal group studies and discusses a different piece of scripture each time, looking at the historical, political, and religious factors. What does ancient scripture have to tell us about ourselves and the world we live in today? We seek to discover what God desires for each individually.

Seasonal programs, such as Summer Bible Study and Lent-related events, will be listed here closer to when they occur.

3-Part Series on Death & Dying
