wednesday bible study

Join us Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. as we explore Melissa Spoelstra's six-week Bible Study, First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree. Her book delves into the apostle Paul's letter to the Corinthians in search of answers on how to get along with one another. You'll discover that the only way to deal with disagreements, differences, and divisions is by living out the radical love of Jesus Christ. You can find peace and harmony when you disagree.

The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. Copies of the book are available from the church for $15.00. We will also use several other supplemental resources that will be provided. Please feel free to bring your study Bibles and other references that provide a variety of perspectives on the epistle of First Corinthians.  

Bring your lunch or a snack to share as we learn, laugh and grow in Christ’s love together. We’ll meet each Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in room 109 at the church.
