Men’s Bible Study Group

We are a diverse group with different backgrounds and are seeking to learn more about what God’s plan is for us in the world. We meet once a week on Wednesday at 6 P.M. and all are welcome.  We use study guides that are usually provided free of charge.  We agree to keep our discussions confidential.  What’s said here, stays here.  If we disagree, we disagree in God’s Love.  We respect each other’s opinions and there are no questions that are not welcome.  We are all on a faith journey together and we are trying to stay on the path and learn about God’s word and God’s plan for us, our family and our congregations at large. We invite you to come and join us. Let’s journey together, one step at a time. Contact:  Monty Love.
