Gospel Readings of the Church Year – ZOOM ON-LINE BIBLE STUDY (On-going and in progress)
In this study we will discuss the Gospel reading for the day. The Gospel text carries the theme for the Sundays of the Church Year. As we gather, online via Zoom, we are ensconced in the safety of our own home, yet able to see fellow participates and engage in edifying discussion. A weekly discussion handout will be emailed each week the participants.

“THE ANGEL ANGLE” (Beginning 1/7/2024)
Angelology: The study of angels will be the topic of the Adult Bible Study in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 am. There are so many myths and misunderstandings about angels, we think it might be enlightening to see the true role of angels in history in relationship to God and how we can grow ourselves in relationship to these heavenly beings. You are invited to come view the angels from a different angle.

Witness, Mercy, and Life Together - Son-Risers Bible Study (Beginning 1/10/24)
Where the Holy Trinity is present and received in faith, there cannot but be witness (martyría), mercy (diakonía), and life together (koinōnía). These three reflect God's very being as Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier, and encompass His holy and gracious will for all in Christ Jesus, namely, that all come to believe in and bear witness to Christ, reflect divine compassion, and live together in forgiveness, love, and joy in the Church.
