Summer Bible Study

Each summer, in lieu of an Adult Education series, we hold a member-led Bible study at 9:45 a.m.* before Sunday worship. This provides members the opportunity to study and discuss  the assigned Lectionary passages upon which each Sunday’s worship is based.

Presbyterians in centuries past worked for the right to have the Bible in our hands and in our own language. They believed that by reading Scripture and talking about what we read, we would grow in faith and knowledge, as guided by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is meant to be read and studied in community so that the Holy Spirit can speak to us and reveal new insights.

This summer’s bible studies will take place each Sunday in June and July at 9:45 a.m.* in the Third Floor Dining Room–access due to construction will be through the youth floor elevator.
 *Please note the new earlier start time.
