Study the Word together
Our small group Bible studies and Sunday morning groups are a vital part of the life of our church. These studies take place throughout the year and at a variety of locations in people’s homes or at the church. Each study is based on the Word and encourages an atmosphere of prayerfulness and mutual care within the group.


That the World May Know – .  Historian and Teacher Ray Vanderlaan engages participants in faith lessons, helping us learn Biblical truths through the historical, geographical and cultural context of the Scriptures.  This is a 10 week class,and each week we will learn Biblical truths through the lens of teachings filmed on location in the Middle East, including sites in Israel and Jordan.   Class meets in the auditorium.

Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience – Ready for a challenge? To take your experience of God and His word deeper this fall? Using the Immerse curriculum, each participant will be reading a special edition of the New Living Translation, where the text is organized like a book. Over the course of the semester we will read the entire New Testament and gather together Sunday mornings to talk about what we notice and how it is changing us.  Laura McLean is leading this small group, which meets in the church office.

Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby, Richard Blackaby and Claude King, has been revised and expanded with more than seventy percent of its material newly written. This Bible study is based on seven Scriptural realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator. By understanding how God is working through us even as we try to fathom His ways, we can begin to clearly know and do His will and discover our lives greatly and gracefully changed. Experiencing God is a modern classic that has sold millions of copies worldwide.  Jim and Danelle Skartvedt are leading this class, which meets in one of the downstairs Sunday School rooms.
