Men’s Bible Fellowship
This small group meets every week on Tuesday mornings at 7:30 a.m. at the church. The beauty of this Bible Study (some like to call it a fellowship) is its simplicity. It is based on the African model for Bible Study. The leader asks one of the men to read that Sunday’s New Testament reading. The leader then encourages discussion asking “what word, what phrase, or what line stands out for you?” After an initial discussion, the leader then selects a different person to read it a second time. This time the leader will encourage the men to discuss how this passage “moves them and how does it apply to their daily life?” Finally, the gospel will be read a third time and the leader then asks the men to discuss how they might take this reading and “use it in the coming week.” Without question the men’s knowledge and understanding of the Bible deepens each week they are there. Because each week is freestanding, please come when you can!

Mens' Bible Study
Men’s Bible Study Group Thursdays from 8:30 - 9:30am in Pastor Kip’s study. All men are invited to join in the fellowship of studying God’s Word. We use study guides and bibles and we cover one chapter each week. Because we have a lot to cover, we need to be disciplined - starting and stopping on time with a short prayer offered by a volunteer to open and close. Join us!
