WOMENS' evening BIBle study (Teens & all ages welcome)

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES @ HOPE, 6:00-7:00 PM; prayer & fellowship, 7:00--7:30 PM, 1ST2ND WEDNESDAYS OF THE MONTH.  This study by Rev. Michael Kasting, from Living Way Bible Studies, began on September 9, 2018.  As with all of our studies, it is not necessary to attend every session to benefit from each individual session, so come as often as you are able!  Studying ahead is valuable, but you will still grow in God's Word, pray,  & connect with other women when you've not been able to "do the homework".  To ask questions, or connect with the Bible study leader, click here >>

women's Morning bible study @ the coffee shop

LOVE RULES @ Sweetwater's Coffee & Tea, Polaris, 9:30 AM on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.  This is a study of the 10 Commandments, written by Christina Hergenrader, published by CPH, "What do the Ten Commandments do for you? Do they send you on a guilt trip? Are they a mirror of your frailties? Or do they hold life-changing love? The miracle of the Commandments is that even after thousands of years, they still hold everything we need to live in relationship with God and with one another."

men's evening bible study (Teens & all ages welcome)

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES @ HOPE, 6:00-7:00PM, on the 3RD & 4THWEDNESDAYS OF THE MONTH.  This new study group, led by one of our elders, is blessed to have participants from teenage young men to those of retirement age. They are using the same Bible study curriculum, from Living Way Bible Studies, as the women. Our men's and women's Bible studies meet on these opposite Wednesday evenings during the same time that our confirmation class students are being taught by our Pastor, which makes it convenient for their moms and dads to have themselves refreshed in fellowship and Bible study at the same time they are being trained-up in the Christian faith. To ask questions, or connect with the Bible study leader, click here >>


This group of women come together in a home in the Olive Green area, from 9:30-11:00am, on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month. To ask questions, and connect with the Bible study leader, click here >>

Don't stay away from the study group just because you haven't had time to do the independent study; you will gain much from just our group study time. To ask connect with the Bible study leader, click here >>
