Bible Studies

Bible studies are a staple in Methodism. We believe that these types of intimate, structured learning environments are just as important to Christians as Sunday morning worship. Not only do we strengthen our faith in these learning environments, we also expand our minds and hearts to understand God’s word from a new perspective.
