Bible Studies

Sunday Bible Class

This is one of the most popular opportunities for members to “grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior." All members are encouraged to attend.

Sunday Bible class is conveniently scheduled between the Sunday morning worship services, from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m.  It runs during the same time as Sunday School, enabling families with children to participate.

    Large Group Bible Study (Fellowship Hall)
  • A Punch in the Gut
    Taught by Chaplain Steve Stern
    September 19 - October 31, 2021
    (no class October 10)

    All of us know that unexpected things can happen to us.  Like a punch in the gut, we can experience a major health crisis or accident that changes our lives in an instant.  As we reel from the effects of such an experience, we may find ourselves struggling physically, emotionally, and spiritually as we try to recover our bearings.  How do we find our way in these times?  How do we gain new insights into our faith?  How does what happens to us affect those around us?
    In addition to unexpected things that happen to us personally, there are also the unexpected things that happen to our relationships with those we hold near and dear such as suicide, loved ones caught up in addictive behaviors, divorce, or an unexpected loss of a loved one.  How do we cope with such pain and how do we respond to those who have caused us this pain?
    Join Chaplain Steve Stern in this Bible study as he uses his own personal experience and his experience as a chaplain to explore these themes.  As Chaplain Stern shares his experiences, he will also invite members of the class to share their experiences so that together the class can gain all the wisdom and insights that God’s people gain from a life time of living under God’s grace.

    The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were each written for a different audience and provide slightly different perspectives on Jesus' life and ministry. Join us as we discuss how the different accounts can be harmonized into a consistent Gospel narrative and testimony to Jesus Christ.
