Bible Study

St Paul’s hosts a number of Bible Study groups throughout the year. Join us every Thursday at noon for our ongoing informal Bible study. We also offer Disciple classes. These classes usually begin in the fall and continue through the “school year”. Check back often for our short term Bible studies and book studies! These typically last for just a few weeks at a time, and often include food, fellowship, and children’s activities.

Be on the lookout for our new small group studies. These groups may be short or long term. They may be oriented around a Bible or book study, or some other activity. Check out our current offerings here!

Current Bible Study Opportunities

We always hold our Thursday, Lunch Bunch Bible Study and book club. See the events calendar for details.

Lenten Book Study: Creed by Adam Hamilton

51GyXbyCcYL._SX302_BO1,204,203,200_We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? Adam Hamilton believes that some powerful answers are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs.

The study will meet in the fellowship hall of St. Paul’s on Wednesdays, March 4, 11, 18, and 25. We will begin at 6:00pm with a pot-luck dinner and conclude by 7:30pm. All ages are welcome! To sign up, contact the church office, email Pastor Doug, or click the link to sign up online.
