An important part of the Christian journey of faith is to always be learning and re-learning the story of God's people. This means revisiting the scriptures repeatedly, listening for insights informed by historical context, personal experience, Church traditions, and sound reasoning. It is the practice of working to better understand who God is, who Jesus is, who Spirit is, and how we are called to be part of it all.
These are the studies we are currently offering:

Our Women's Book Study meets at 10:00am on Thursday mornings at the church in the Heritage Room.
Fascinating Bible Studies
on Every Parable
Jesus knew the power of stories to touch people's hearts, so he used parables to teach his followers about the kingdom of God. If you want to know God better, the keys are in the parables.
This book provides short studies on every parable in the Bible. You'll learn what God wants us to know from the prodigal son, the good Samaritan, the lost sheep, the talents, the sower, and many more.
Each study includes a summary of the parable, the Scripture reference where it can be found, information on the historical and cultural setting, and key points. At the end of each study are questions that open the door to discussion, reflection, or further investigation and help you get to the heart of the parable.
A wonderful tool for small groups or to add variety to your personal devotions. Let these studies draw you nearer to God as they enhance your understanding of his Word.
Our Searchers study class meets Sunday mornings at 8:30. Our discussions can cover theologians, scriptural interpretation, and current events.
The Apostle Paul
Searchers is currently studying the life and influences of the Apostle Paul. Paul, formerly Saul, is attributed to have written 13 of the 21 epistles (letters) of the New Testament, making him one of the most prolific authors of early Christianity. Much of our Christian theology is built on Paul's teachings about Christ.
