Sunday Bible Studybible study image

"God Calls Us into Covenant"



On Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. the adult Bible study class meets in Room 1 (library), at the end of the breezeway. We have fifteen adults (men and women) registered and average between ten and twelve in attendance.


We have a lively Bible Study! That's what happens here. As adults study the Bible and discuss what they found during the week, they gain growing understanding of how to move forward on their discipleship journey. In the class, we read the Scripture and then focus on the passage. Each week we’re challenged to prepare for the next week's lesson. The preparation isn't long or difficult, but it does encourage participation. When adults have invested something of themselves in the lesson, they get more out of it. The biggest part of the Sunday school lesson doesn't happen in class. It happens on Monday and Tuesday – and through the week – when instead of following their own desires or the crowd, they dare to say, "No, I will follow Jesus."
