Bible Study

Bible studies are an opportunity to get to know a few people well and explore a topic of personal interest. All are welcome to choose from a rolling schedule of studies lasting anywhere from four weeks to twenty weeks.

The Faithful: Heroes of the Old Testament

Borrowing from best-selling studies by Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Lisa Harper, Kelly Minter, and Jennifer Rothschild, this 5-session study explores crucial moments in the lives of five Old Testament figures Esther, Gideon, Malachi, Nehemiah, and Hosea. Through their stories, discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people for His glory and the good of His people. Strengthen your faith as you walk alongside these larger-than-life figures who all chose to obey God no matter the circumstances.

This study for women is led by April Stambaugh and meets twice monthly on Thursdays, skipping the week of Greenville County Spring Break. The dates are March 7 & 21, April 4 &25, and May 9. Room 115, Downtown Campus 10:00 AM-11:30 AM.  Childcare provided. For more information contact April Stambaugh.

Entering the Passion of Jesus

by Amy-Jill Levine
Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward.

Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes, or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.

In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.

This Study will be held two Wednesdays a month during February, March, and April:  February 20, 27; March 13, 20; and April 3, 10 from 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM at the Downtown Campus. For more information, contact Cathy Musselwhite.

Small Groups are a wonderful way to form relationships around common-interests and experiences shared by other people in the church. Often, small groups engage in Bible study, formally and informally, throughout the year. If you are interested in joining a small group, please contact Reverend Roy Mitchell.
