Bible studies

Bible studies take many different forms throughout the week. We have Bible studies for men, women, and mixed. While fellowship is a part of all of our groups, Bible studies have teachers who have prepared lessons and will lead discussion throughout the time together.


Check out our list of Bible studies below for a group, date, and time that works for you.


Feel free to contact the study's leader(s) to find out more. You can also check out our Facebook page for specific updates such as cancellations.
