Bible Studies

  • Sunday Bible Class – “The Life of David”

This Bible study meets on Sunday mornings at 9:10 in the church basement.   We will be using the series The Life of David. We will look at events in David’s life and connect them to our lives. The Lord uses David’s strengths and weaknesses to teach his church. From David killing Goliath to David being overcome by temptation, we can see images of ourselves and learn how God deals justly with those he loves.  Please join us!

  • Winter Bible Study Timely Topics, God’s Response”
    There are many things happening around us in the world. The world strays away from God’s Word calling it freedom. How are we to respond? For the weeks leading up to Christmas join us as we see those topics the world pushes our way, and God’s response to those topics. We meet on Monday at 7:00 PM, and Wednesday at 11:00 AM, in the church basement. Please join us!
