In-Person Bible Study

You probably know that we have had a vibrant online Bible/book study going on since the beginning of COVID. It has been a great success and I hope it continues to be a blessing to all who participate. But what about the people who can't join online? Well, you're in luck! In-person studies are in the parlor on Thursdays from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. This will get everyone home before dark.

We will start with getting to know each other and where we are on our faith walk, and have a chance to share what it is we want to learn in the group. And then - we will start learning!

Hope to see you there.

Wednesday Night Bible Study

Join us at Beacon of Hope United Methodist Church for our Wednesday Night Bible Study, where we gather together virtually via Zoom from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. This engaging and enriching study offers a wonderful opportunity to delve deeper into God's word, discuss scripture, and grow in faith alongside fellow believers. Led by our knowledgeable and passionate leaders, these sessions provide a supportive and welcoming environment for participants of all ages and backgrounds.

Whether you're seeking to deepen your understanding of the Bible, connect with others in the faith community, or simply explore questions of spirituality, we invite you to join us as we journey together in pursuit of spiritual growth and enlightenment.
