Adult Bible Study

Every Sunday morning, 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Anderson Hall, our Sunday morning Bible Study group explores the scriptures that will be used in the worship service an hour later.  Led by Rev. Patty, everyone is encouraged to think out loud about the text, discuss its possible meanings, and consider how it might apply to one's daily life. Knowledge of the Bible is not necessary. Participants are always oriented to the text and offered insights into the historical context of the passage.

This is a conversational-style Bible study, so everyone's comments are valued. There is usually a time toward the end of the hour when the large group breaks into small groups to encourage more interactive discussion. After participating in this Bible study, you will find your worship experience in the next hour taking on deeper meaning, because worship is based on the text you have just been discussing!
