Bible Study

  • Sunday Bible Class Come and join us for this opportunity to grow in our faith together as we study “The Life of Abraham”.
  • “Don’t Forsake Jesus!” The Letter to the Hebrews is our Monday / Wednesday Bible Study for this Fall.”
    Challenges to those 1st century believers’ faith made forsaking Jesus rather tempting.  God used this writer to give them reasons to remain faithful to Jesus.  Obviously, there are many applications to us and to our faith challenges in 21st century USA.  Join us for this relevant study; Mondays at 7 P.M. and Wednesdays at 11 A.M. (same lesson) in the Church basement.
