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).
