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.

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.
