The Bible is the focus of our study on many levels, in several places. You’ll find Bible studies in Sunday School classes, in women’s groups, and other occasional groups. Some of these studies are devotionally oriented, using readings to lead to discussions of faith and God’s place in our lives. Other studies are more technically oriented, seeking to probe the historical, literary, and cultural context of the text, examine questions of translation and textual difficulties, then discover how the text speaks to our current situation.
