Bible Study and Bible Fellowships are where we make our BIG CHURCH feel small. This is where we focus on being a church family. Our large Sunday worship service paired with our Bible Studies and Bible Fellowships are instrumental to spiritual growth. These groups are where we combine application of scripture through living life together in our community. 

What are the differences between Bible Fellowship and Bible Studies? 

Bible Fellowships are just like Sunday School but meet on Mondays and Tuesdays. They are ongoing groups with no ending date and new participants are always welcome... at any time! Classes meet weekly in The Cove. 

Bible Studies are short-term topical studies. These classes require registration quarterly. With short-term studies, you have the opportunity to study multiple topics throughout the year.

2019 Bible Reading Plan

Reading through the Bible will bring hope, encouragement, guidance and even practical advice in your day to day life. The Bible is relevant for everyone, everywhere, all the time. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned reader, one of the most important things you can do is read the Bible regularly for yourself. 

Reading through the Bible can seem a little daunting. Without a reading plan, it can be easy to give up before you get through the first week. Below, you will see two different reading plans. Take a look at them, decide which is best suited for you and begin the adventure of reading through the Bible.
