Living Way BIble Study: weekly IN-depth study

CURRENT SEMESTER'S STUDY: Great Miracles of the Old Testament (January to April, 2019) 


  • Wednesday mornings at 9am in Sanctuary & various break-out rooms   or
  • Thursday evenings at 7pm in Fellowship Hall

The Living Way in-depth study format features a weekly lesson with assigned readings and worksheet questions to answer, break-out time in a small group to discuss the lesson in a casual setting, followed by a lecture on the lesson topic by our pastors or vicar. During the pastors' lecture time, Q&A are always welcomed. 

Join us on Wednesday mornings (beginning January 9) or Thursday evenings (beginning January 10) for this  semester's study, Great Miracles of the Old Testament. In this study, we will examine some of the tremendous moments of our Lord’s intervention in the natural course of history and human events. We will see how God’s interventions were important to His overall plan of demonstrating redemption and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. This study will give a greater appreciation of the Lord’s ongoing presence in our lives and communities, an appreciation for His constant providence and care in the midst of a fallen world suffering the consequences of sin and death.
