Monday Morning Bible Study Group. Mondays 9:00 AM @ Meeting Room. Led by Pastor Eric, this group meets during the school year. The current topic is the Book of Hebrews. The book of Hebrews offers a model to follow, a cause to champion, deep theology, and practical applications for today. We will take a look at the life of Jewish Christians in the first century. They were homeless because of their faith and lived as strangers in a world that was often hostile to them; Christians just didn’t fit into the Roman style of life. As aliens, they needed encouragement to live for Christ despite their circumstances, so the writer of this letter urged them to endure. The courage they needed would come through Jesus Christ. Through Jesus, we, too, are made capable of enduring and overcoming all the struggles of life. 

Sunday Bible Study

Adult Forum Bible Study. Sundays 9:30 - 10:30 AM @ the Meeting Room. Led by Bob Schmidt or Elvin Harms, this group meets during the Sunday morning education hour. Nurturing Your Faith: Called is a Bible study inspired by the book of Ephesians. Its four sessions explore how we are called by God to faith and, in turn, called to others in lives of outreach and service. Bible passages emphasize key concepts, and reflection questions prompt users to think through the material. Feel free to join in any time. If you have any questions, please email Bob Schmidt at or Elvin Harms at

Women's Bible Study Groups

Wednesday Women's Bible Study (WWBS). Wednesdays 9:00 AM @ Fellowship Hall. This group meets regularly during the school year. The new Spring topic starts April 12th: Waiting. We wait. And...wait. In traffic, at the doctor’s office, at the restaurant. For the right guy. For a baby. For the test results. For prayers to be heard. Waiting can be agony. In our culture where almost everything is instant, we are accustomed to getting what we want now. So when our lives are put in a holding pattern, we squirm. But what if the waiting rooms of life are God’s best classrooms? What if the Holy Spirit changes us through the uncomfortable delays of life? Throughout history, God has called on His people to wait for His timing and His will. This study focuses on the lives of 8 biblical women who waited and yearned and ached. Women like us. Waiting highlights principles that make these times more bearable, and maybe more meaningful, even if it feels like God isn’t present or there’s nothing we can do. Learn how to surrender your worries to God, handle the daily-ness of waiting, and draw closer to Jesus.
