    Fall Studies Schedule:

    All are invited to join in the studies we are offering this fall! Register at the church office or use the clipboard in the lobby to sign up. The nursery will be provided if it is requested by the sign-up deadline. We want to make Bible study available to all, and we hope that discipleship will be a priority!

  • Christmas Is Not Your Birthday
    This 5-session study by Mike Slaughter is a great way for us to get ourselves truly ready for the season of Advent. Held on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00, the study begins on October 15 and ends November 19. Books cost $13 and will be available from the office in early September. Nursery registration deadline is October 4.
  • Awaiting the Already
    This 4-session Advent study takes us on a tour through the Gospel narratives, showing us what parts of the Christmas story come from which Gospel, and helps us to recognize that each Gospel writer invites us to encounter a fresh experience of the birth of Christ. Held Mondays from 11:00AM to noon so that those who work during the day can use lunch hours to participate, the study will be held November 30 to December 21. Cost is $10.
  • Sunday night Bible Study for Adults:
    With the beginning of Kids Club & UMYF, we also want to offer parents the opportunity to grow! Beginning Sunday, September 20, and continuing each Sunday when there is Kids Club, Kim Lamb will lead a Bible Study from 5:50 to 6:55 in Room 12. There is no book to purchase, just bring your Bible. We will have weekly reading assignments, and child care for children too young to participate in Kids Club is available by advance registration. Sign up in the lobby today!
