Bible Study Fellowship Groups

Saturday Bible Study

You are invited to join one of our Saturday morning classes.  We call them "Sabbath School classes." The textbook is the Bible. The goal of the classes is to help us become disciples of Jesus. Guests are especially welcome to any class of their choice to join in the study and discussion of the Bible topic for that week. Our study guide, Bible Study Guide, is available online.

  • Time: Saturdays, 9:30 – 10:30
  • Location: Church sanctuary and Pathfinder room
  • Leaders: Wallace Ruminson and Douglas Motsenbocker

Collegiate Fellowship

The Friday night gathering of young adults includes snacks, music, fellowship and Bible study. Sometimes there’s a hike on Saturday afternoons.

  • Time: Friday 6:00 p.m.
  • Leader: Jennica Axt

Home Bible Study Fellowships

Are you looking for a small group study to connect with? Join one of our Home Bible Study Fellowships. It’s a group of Christians who want to make the Bible relevant to our every day lives. The group life is built around the building blocks found in Acts 2:42: Study, Fellowship, Prayer, and Socializing together.

  • Time: Every other Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.
  • Leader: John Stewart
  • Location: Springville

Upper Room Ladies Bible Study

This is a relaxed fellowship. We are currently reading and discussing a chapter in the Gospels. Over herb tea we share our praises, concerns and encourage one another.

  • Time: Wednesdays, 1:00 p.m.
  • Leader: Bonnie Lue Shakespear
  • Location: Lindsay

Deaf Ministry

We have a dedicated group whose ministry is translating our services on Saturday mornings into the American Sign Language for those who are unable to hear the pastor's words. Some members also enjoy "signing" the music. We welcome our deaf friends to come benefit from this spiritual nurture.

  • Time: Saturdays and other times TBA
  • Leader: Stephanie Walters
