Adult Studies

Monday Adult Bible Study

7:30 pm in Room 24

The 8-week study entitled “The New Testament You Never Knew”, is presented by N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird. These Bible scholars will bring us new insights into some of our most familiar stories about Jesus and his ministry. The information that they share is presented while on location at various sites in the Holy Land, Italy, or Greece, adding an additional visual feature to the experience. 

If you have not been a regular participant in the past but would like to join please contact Ron Smith (440-258-8576) so that we can order a study guide for you. 

Second Blessing Study Group

11:20 am on Sundays

In the Parlor

Our Second Blessing class will focus on the Advent DVD study by Adam Hamilton: “Prepare the Way for the Lord”, in which he features the role of John the Baptist in the Advent story.  We will meet at 11:20 am in the parlor. This will give us a few minutes after church to see our friends at coffee hour and bring a donut and coffee up to the parlor. 

Thursday Morning Adult Bible Study

10 am on Thursdays in Room 24

A four-week Advent study focusing on the book, "Christmas in the Four Gospel Homes," by Cynthia M. Campbell begins on Dec.1. It compares the Christmas story through the lens of the four Gospels. New study members are welcome for this short four-week session.
