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 from you.  This non-denominational, in-depth study of the Word of God is condensed into a 50-minute class that meets on Thursday mornings. This comprehensive study is a chance to meet with other men who desire to learn more about the Scriptures under an experienced Bible teacher.  While no homework will be assigned, study guides, note, and other resources will be provided to enhance your study.
