Bible Study continues for adults through the summer. All adults are welcome to come as they are able.:

Wednesday Morning Bible Study meets at 10 a.m. Each Wednesday we will study the scripture text used for our worship service the following Sunday. Join us for a spirited, open discussion.

Sunday Morning Bible Study meets at 11 a.m. This summer's focus is God's Prophets Demand Justice, using a guide written by Jenn Hosler. It examines God’s perspective on justice and injustice, and our response as people of faith. This quarter covers seven different Old Testament prophets as they investigate the perpetrators of injustice, the nature of injustice, and the victims of injustice. It steadily moves toward repentance, redemption, and restoration.
