Men’s Bible Study
With competing priorities and packed schedules, it’s often hard to devote time to the study of Scripture. Our intention is to give you a spiritually enriching and fulfilling group Bible study that doesn’t require an intense time commitment. This non-denominational, in-depth study of God’s Word is condensed into 50-minute classes that meets on Thursday mornings. This comprehensive study provides an opportunity to meet with other men who desire to learn more about the Scriptures from an experienced Bible teacher. Dr. Tom Cragoe will be serving as the teacher. While no homework will be assigned, study guides, note, and other resources will be provided to enhance your study.

I have been attending Iron 2 Iron Men’s Bible study for over 1 year. It has become a weekly treasure for me. By that I mean that it is more than a Biblical breath of fresh air – it actually gives you a boost of rocket fuel. I leave feeling energized for God’s self-revelation and also for direct communication with God. I often wish I could capture in a jar the feeling I have as I drive away from these weekly meetings.
