Adult and Youth Biblical Study and Instruction

Feeding the mind and growing the soul through deeper understanding of the Word.

Teaching and learning are essential to our ability to think and act faithfully as a church from generation to generation. Therefore, we are committed to the development and support of an educational program for all ages that cultivates a high level of biblical literacy and theological understanding and nourishes the vital practice of Christian discipleship.

Sunday Morning Bible Study — Sundays 10h00 in G2

Join us after the 9h00 service or before the 11h00 service for a casual, fun, and in-depth Bible study led by local pastor, the Rev. Brent Anderson. Each Sunday participants will gather to read and discuss the gospel lesson for the following Sunday.

The goal is to stir the soil—to scratch below the surface and familiarize ourselves with the text—so that we can better receive its message the next week in worship. This is a great to begin preparing for worship—it helps you to not only give more of yourself in worship, but to get more out of it.

BrentAndersonMost recently the Rev. Brent Anderson served as the senior pastor of Steel Lake Presbyterian Church in Federal Way, Washington (near Seattle); a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Since then he has followed his wife around the world: first to Sweden (where Valérie was a post-doctoral fellow in New Testament at the University of Uppsala) and then to Paris (where Valérie is the new Professor of New Testament at the Institute Protestant de Théologie, Eglise Protestante Unie de France – Communion Luthérienne et Réformée).

This Bible Study is open to everyone—beginner and bible scholar alike. Drop-ins and occasional visitors are always welcome! For more information, please contact Brent here.  Download Brent's guide to reading and studying the Bible here.
