Tuesday Night Bible Study
The purpose of the Tuesday Evening Bible Study is to provide an opportunity for all level of students to meet and study the Bible so they may learn to apply the message of the scripture to their lives. The class consists of presentations and discussion. The presentations provide basic academic aspects of a specific book of the Bible (Author, Date, Audience, Structure, Major Themes, etc.) to set overall context. The discussion provides the opportunity for fellowship and sharing regarding how the scripture has impacted each participant. The group meets Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00pm in the Pastoral Center Dining Room. Contact Steve Smith or Jane Mellem for more information.
