With today's busy schedules, it's hard to devote time to the church. Yet we believe that we must be continually growing in our faith, even as adults, in order to be the best disciples for Christ that we can be. We do not have Bible study on Sunday mornings, but we do have a midweek Bible study on Wednesdays at 7pm for adults of all ages. This study time, led by Rev. Reeda, is filled with lots of laughter and challenging discussion as we share our individual understandings of the scriptures and seek to grow in our faith and understanding of who God is.
Current Study and Schedule: The Reformation - Join us as we study the life of Martin Luther as it pertains to the history and development of the Protestant reformation and how it impacts our world today. October 31, 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the moment when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany. This act, along with those of other reformers, helped to spark the Reformation that changed not only the church but our society as well. See the link for the video segments below.
