Classes & Bible Studies

walking with Jesus

We Are Grounded in the Living Word!

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of the church’s proclamation, faith, and life.  Therefore, study of God’s Word is a priority at Living Word.

Our Christian education theme for 2018-2019 is “Walking with Jesus.”  We encourage everyone to take advantage of the many opportunities to learn more about Jesus and walk more closely with Him.

Sunday School for Children

Worship starts at 9:00 AM, and Sunday school for children follows at 10:30-11:30 AM.  “Walking with Jesus” is the theme for 2018-2019.  With just a few exceptions, Sunday School classes are held weekly September through May.

Bible Studies for Adults

Hebrews 4:12 (ESV)

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

There is a seat for you at any of the Bible studies listed!

Wednesday PM Living Way Bible Study

This class is led by Ron Heilman and meets weekly at the church office 6:45-8:00 PM.  The book of Hebrews is on tap for study in 2018-2019.  This book boldly proclaims the superiority of Jesus Christ and Chrisitanity over other religions, including Judaism.  In a logical argument, the author demonstrates Christ’s superiority, then adds practical instructions for following Jesus.
