Adult Study Groups

berean2

The life-long journey of faith-formation is supported with adult discussion groups and classes:

  • Sunday Mornings at 9:15
    • Bereans The Berean Class has been meeting since 1992, led by lay volunteers. The Bible is
      studied and a video occasionally adds insight. Individuals are asked to read and study various verses
      and then discuss what they have read with the group. Coffee and goodies are served every Sunday. A breakfast
      is held a couple of times a year and there is a Christmas Party in mid-January.
  • Weekdays
    • Tuesday Morning Adult Study, 10-11 a.m.
      Ever read a good book and wish you could talk about it? Ever pick up something that challenges the way you think and wish
      you could ask about it, even see what someone else thinks about it? The books vary in subject matter, but always
      have a way of stimulating our minds and feeding our hearts so we grow in our faith. And live better. This is led by ourAWG-BS
      pastor, Jeff Nelson, but everyone manages to get a word in better than edgewise when they want to. Everyone’s welcome!
    • As We Gather Bible Study, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
      Every Friday morning at 9:30am, you are invited to join us – Watch, Explore, Experience, & Discuss the Bible here at ROFUM, continuing with the Book of Genesis .This is led by Bob Demyanovich, Fred Bowden, Greg Allen and Neal Harris.
