In Adult Bible Study (ABS), the Word of God is read, taught, and discussed so that we can grow in the discipline and instruction of our Lord.
Adult Bible Study meets on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in upstairs room 204.
We invite you to come study with us!
New Series starts this Fall –
1 Corinthians: Life together in a pagan world
The church at Corinth had its problems. Corinth was a notorious Roman colony and seaport and it is notable that the Greeks had a word, Korinthiazein (living like a Corinthian) used to describe one living a life of debauchery. Corinth was the home to the temple of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, and a port town filled with sailors, veterans of Roman wars and merchants from around the Roman world. It is no surprise then that a church planted in the midst of this environment and filled with many new believers would have its challenges. In light of this, Paul instructs the Corinthians:
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Paul’s exhortation is meant for us today as the culture around us becomes more and more like Corinth. We invite you to join us as we allow God to instruct and encourage us in how to live godly lives together in a pagan world.
We meet at 9:30am Sunday upstairs in Room 403

Adult Bible Study strives to build up the body of Christ by encouraging continual growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Open to adults of all ages, we get to know one another, study the word together, discuss the implications of what we learn and seek to encourage one another as disciples of Jesus.
We study through scripture and through the occasional book that biblically cover topics relevant to the people of Grace.
