Pastor Dorothy holds Bible studies several times a month at Hilltop Home of Comfort and every Tuesday afternoon at St. John's with the GIFTS program. Any one is welcome join us! Please contact Pastor Dorothy for more details.
You don't have to be a highly trained scholar to meaningfuly engage in the Bible. The Scriptures are the living Word of God, speaking to you and me today in this time and place. As we read a passage, questions to consider are:
What jumps out at me?
What surprises me?
What is confusing?
What is inspiring?
What challenges me?
How does this speak to my life right now?
When we study the Bible in a group, we get the chance to work through some of these questions and are enriched by other people's observations as well. When more information is needed, there are several great resources available:
