Small Group Bible Study

In a world that reinvents its ethics and morals on a regular basis, knowing and understanding the sure foundation of truth in the Bible is vital. The best way to learn the Bible is in a small group of peers in which you can ask questions, struggle with application, and hold one another accountable. 

That process looks like this: (1) Acknowledge that God has authority in our lives. (2) Study the words of the Bible. (3) Discover the truths taught in those words. (4) Personalize those truths to our unique life situation. (5) Struggle with the implications--life changes that need to be made. (6) Believe and obey.

That's a hard process! We need people we trust to help us go through that, and to go through it alongside us. This is true no matter how old or young we are. And that's why we have small group Bible studies every Sunday morning. You can call it "Sunday School" if you want, but it's not just for kids. It's for everyone.
