Bible Studies

About Our Bible Studies

We embrace the membership vow of Presence, especially in the atmosphere of small groups and classes.  God instilled in us the desire to belong.  Evening classes and Sunday School are ways to feel connected and grow in your faith.  Studying the bible in a small group is an effective way to grow your relationship closer to Christ, while at the same time getting connected with your church family. Please contact Andrea Vrtikapa, Congregational Connector, for more information.
