We have two Bible study groups.
The discussion groups are very inspiring! As with most endeavors, satisfaction comes from our individual preparation and study and results in a joy to share our insights with one another. Both groups have pre-reading assignments and send reminders via email.
Weekly MONDAY Bible Study Group
This group meets every Monday at noon in the Reading Room at the front of the church. (Some people are on their break and bring their lunch.) The current format is to take a book of the Bible and read approximately one chapter per week through the entire book. In order to get a discussion going, we have emailed questions about the “assigned” readings. This works very well for those of us who are not well versed in the continuity of the Bible. The Book of Acts, or “the New Church in Action” is the current course of study. Currently Joan and Peggy act as moderators: ie: prepare & send out questions or discussion topics a few days in advance and take charge of starting a dialogue as well as keep it moving along.
