Pastor's Bible Study
Do you want to learn more about the Bible and what it says? Bible study is one of the foundational ways that you will learn about your faith. The Bible is God’s Word to us and provides inspiration, instruction and guidance about every aspect of your life. Studying the Bible, then, is a matter of course to those who love God and seek a close personal relationship with him and want to learn how to apply God’s word to their life. Pastor Craig leads this weekly Bible study. Bible study materials are provided and Bible study begins at 6 pm and ends at 7:30 pm. It doesn’t matter whether you are new in your faith, have attended Bible study for many years or are just curious about what the Bible has to say. ALL are welcome! Come as you are! You will be blessed!
