Thoughtful study and learning about God’s Word is a foundation of the Christian faith. We believe that learning can be enhanced by small group interactions to explore and interact on the messages our Lord gives to us. Our Learning Ministry is designed to provide those opportunities for individuals to grow their faith through thought provoking study. All are welcome to attend any of our interactions, both those who attend our church and those who go elsewhere, or not at all.
Please feel free to join us on this journey of faith and discipleship as we study God’s word. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
What We Do
Described below are three opportunities to study God’s Word in a small group setting.
Pastor's Home Study
This time is discipleship building as we seek direction form Scripture and especially what Jesus did and taught. Our studies have included a Parallel of the Gospels, A History of Christianity, issues of applied Christianity, and book studies such as The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan. As we learn from Scripture we seek to apply it to our lives and so studies of others who have set the example are readily received by those who attend.
The setting is usually that of a private home where the nurture and respect of each person is highly valued and the differing thoughts of all bring a richness to the dialogue.
Because many of our congregants are “RVers" we schedule these studies during the fall and winter of each year so as to maximize participation. I would be glad to talk or email with anyone who would like to know more about the content and objectives of the studies.
Our present study, Gospel Parallels, is meeting on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m., and gathers at the home of Jerry and Dee Thomas located at the North Ranch RV park in Congress, AZ, just a 15 minute drive down Yarnell Hill. It will conclude just before Easter Sunday as we look closely at the passion of Christ.
This seasonal time is deeply meaningful for me personally as I learn more with those who share from their lives and enrich my own. Let me hear from you as you would like to be part of these gatherings.
Women's Fellowship Bible Study (from WF/Bible Study Ministry- the same text remains there)
This bible study is the Horizons bible study put out every year by Presbyterians USA Presbyterian Women. It starts the second week of January and will go for nine weeks until the end of March. Note: men are welcome to participate in these studies.
2019 study will become part of the Sunday Morning Bible Study.
