We believe that bible studies and small groups, when composed of people who really care about one another and are gathered around God’s Word, can be a great help to us in growing closer to Jesus. Please peruse the following information on the bible studies and small groups that we are offering during the Fall of 2016 and see if one of them will fit for you.
If you would like to join a small group, please contact the church office. You can also express interest in a small group by signing up during our sign-up period in September or by contacting the group leader.
Sunday Morning Drop-In Bible Study Our group meets on Sunday morning at 9:30 am in the boardroom. Anyone is welcome to drop in. We usually have coffee, and sometimes goodies. We read & discuss the Bible readings for the day. We get to know the people in the group and try to help them if we are able. We also encourage each other in our faith & trust in Jesus, our Saviour. There are enough of us that generally our goal is to meet weekly year round. Led by Harvey A.
