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.


Adult and Youth Sunday School Class  We are working through additional “faith lessons” in video materials from the That the World May Know series.  Filmed in Israel and the Middle East where Bible events took place, these lessons weave together historical, cultural, and geographical contexts to provide insights into how people in biblical times understood Jesus’ teaching. Teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals keen insights into the Scripture’s significance for believers today.  This material has been gradually produced in 16 volumes, starting in the mid-90’s, and has been very much enjoyed over the years.  We plan to cover some of the faith lessons from earlier in the series. – We will continue to offer Sunday School each week for our Preschool-Early Elementary children.
