Sunday Adult Bible Classes

At 9 a.m.
Standing Under the Scriptures

Looking for an intellectual challenge as well as a spiritual one? Check out our Standing Under the Scriptures class. We don’t stand under the Scriptures dogmatically. Instead we ask, “If we stand under them, what follows?” (In fact, exciting things follow! In elucidating what we stand under — we draw on the original Greek and Hebrew texts along with the findings of Biblical scholarship. Come to the Library prepared for mental and spiritual exercise.
