God intends for Scripture to transform people, not just inform. We believe that through in-depth Bible study, God will speak to you individually, teaching you how to interpret His Word and giving you new understanding about what it means in your life. Studying Scripture will also teach you the history of the Christian faith, grow you closer to a Christian community and provide a safe place to ask questions. Now is the perfect opportunity to explore the Bible and your own spiritual journey!
Small groups meet weekly to study the Bible; take a look at the studies we offer each week.
Contact Cathy Sweeney, Associate Pastor of Discipleship, for questions or more information.
