Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Wednesday Night Bible Study meets in the back room of Pilgrim House on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Most folks arrive by 6:15 with a brown bag supper, and others arrive around 6:30 which is nominally when the Bible Study begins. Generally the group ranges in size from 5 to 10 participants.

The format is simple; we just read the Bible (out loud) and talk about it. Sometimes we engage in a prolonged study of a book or a series of books of the Bible. (For example, recently we focused on 1st and 2nd Samuel.) And other times we'll focus on specific topics in the Bible (justice, faith, death, etc.) Sometimes we plan ahead, and sometimes we make spur-of-the-moment choices. But in any case the discussion is generally wide ranging and unstructured.

We talk about the Bible passages and things that come up in relation to these. You are welcome to "just show up" and need not come to every session. You don't need to read anything in advance. People drop in and out as their life dictates and the membership keeps changing.

"I have been participating in the Wednesday Bible study since its inception in 1982 or 83. What began as a follow up to the Faith-to-Focus workshop under the auspices of CLAY later metamorphosed into a Bible study group. I attend it because I like the flexible approach to the study of the Bible, and I like the people who have ever attended a great deal. I would like to see some new folks join us and know they would be welcomed." - John Little

"What could be better? A great group of people and the timeless wisdom of the Bible, which always has something new to teach us." - Mike Schafale

"Biblical literacy helps any Christian know their roots." - Lavon Page
