Explorers

This class explores the stories of the Bible by looking at the history, studying the facts, reading the scripture, and lots of discussion. Everyone’s opinions matter and no one person is right or wrong. Every scripture means something different to each person, and we learn from each others’ interpretation.

SONshine Class:

This class is an opportunity to learn more about the Bible by meeting with adults of all ages in a small group setting to discuss and learn about how God’s word applies to our everyday live, so that we may show (shine) the love of Christ (the SON) in today’s world. The SONshine class studies the Bible through using media, books, and scripture.

Explore the Word

This is a  “short course on one kind of Bible study”, EXPLORE the Word. We will be searching through all 4 gospels (here and there) as well as some of Paul’s letters, Acts and more. Surprises await and good discussion will be the best part of this new type of experience. Come join us in an interactive journey though God’s Word. What did it mean in 100 AD? Is it the same now? Is this a 2000 year old book or is it being written today??Interested? Come and see.
Please bring your favorite Bible (King James not recommended for this course). If you need a Bible, one will be provided.
