Adult Bible Studies

At Immanuel, we encourage all believers to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures. We have several Bible study groups that meet regularly as well as some on-demand relational studies. If you'd like to join a group, please fill out the form below to let us know!

Tuesday Morning Bible Study Group

Tuesdays 9:00AM @Meeting Room

Led by the pastor, this group meets during the school year. The current topic is the Book of John. John begins his book by echoing the words from the Bible's creation story, "In the beginning", showing his readers that this is a story of a new creation. Just as the first creation was completed in 7 days, John uses the number 7 to structure his book. For the Jews the number 7 represented completeness and wholeness, a finished work of God revealing his purpose for the world. The story is told in 2 main parts. The 1st describes Jesus' public ministry and has 7 sections. Each section closes with a report on how people respond to Jesus, either in faith or unbelief. The 2nd part is devoted to the Passover weekend, when Jesus gave His life for the world. 

Sunday Morning Bible Study Group

Sundays 9:30AM @Meeting Room

Led by Bob Schmidt, this group meets during the school year. The current topic is Joseph the Carpenter. Joseph is a man appointed by God to do extraordinary things. It might be hard to swallow that your betrothed is with child-and by the Holy Spirit no less. But that would be only the first of many things Joseph would have to deal with. Beyond that bombshell, there was the inconvenient trek to Bethlehem with the pregnant Mary to fulfill the census, finding a suitable place for the baby to be born, later trekking down to Egypt to escape Herod's homicidal directive and, finally, the no-little matter of raising the Son of God!

Saturday Men's Bible Study Group

Saturdays 8:00AM @Fellowship Hall

Led by Pastor Noah, this group meets during the school year. The current topic is The Book of Hebrews. Hebrews is written for every believer today, for we have crossed over from darkness to light and from doubt to faith. The name Hebrews means, “those who crossed over.” We have passed from shadows to substance and from doubt to the reality of faith. Hebrews is a divinely inspired composition given to show us the magnificence of Jesus as our glorious High Priest. Because He gave His sacred blood for us, we now have unrestricted access to the holiest place of all. With no veil and nothing hindering our intimacy with God, we can come with an unbelievable boldness to His mercy-throne where we encounter enough grace to empower us through every difficulty. We find our true life in His presence. 

Wednesday Women's Bible Study Group

Wednesdays 9:00AM @Fellowship Hall

Led by Laura Klein, this group meets regularly during the school year. The current topic is Jesus: A Study on the Words of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This study features 24 lessons that compare what each Gospel writer wrote about Jesus and presents Jesus’ ministry in chronological order. Get a better understanding of the New Testament Gospel message and why it is 100% reliable. Learn how the Gospel writers presented Jesus as the Savior of mankind with powerful proofs and authority. 

Wednesday Evening Women's Bible Study Group

Wednesdays 6:30PM @Library

Led by Erica Ciro, this group meets regularly during the school year. The current topic is Before Amen, a 5-week video study on prayer. Do you struggle with prayer? We all do. Even the first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance. And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same? In Before Amen you’ll be taken on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope and confidence. You’ll learn that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few; it’s simply a heartfelt conversation between God and His child. If you’d like to join this study, please purchase this study guide prior to the first day of class (Jan 10). 

We also offer a series of Relational Studies on an on-demand basis:

#1 Going Deep

This is the 8-week beginning course for Immanuel's relationship series. Move more deeply into your relationship with God. Based on Blackaby's Experiencing God, you will learn to observe God-sightings, see your current life from a new lens, and develop relational skills toward transformation. 

#2 Immanuel Journaling

Prerequisite: must have completed the Going Deep: The Divine Adventure study. Level 2 of the relational studies. Continue to move more deeply into your relationship with God. In this 12-week study based on Joyful Journey you will explore thought-rhyming with God as discussed in Ephesians 2:10 and how to access this skill as well as an introduction to some of the ways God has created our brains for relationship.

Immanuel Lifestyle

For those who have completed the Going Deep class: Want to move toward an interactive relationship with God? Learn how to live a God-with-me life? Come find out in this 10-week class! Learn how to deepen gratitude experiences that kickstart the relational areas in your brain. Draw nearer to the Lord and identify blocks that hinder your relationship with Him. Learn a new visual style prayer form. 

Going Deep Huddle #1

This 6-week small group experience is for those who have taken either relational course and would like to review the 7 realities as illustrated in the Bible and our lives now.

Going Deep Huddle Cont...

A similar format to Huddle #1 above, but with new Biblical events and life questions. This 6-week small group is for those who have taken either relational course, but especially for those who have already taken the Huddle #1 class.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is being aware of our thoughts. In this study learn to to be more mindfully aware in your everyday Life. Explore what that means for you in your walk with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. There are no prerequisites; come as you are.
