Peer Bible Study
Small Group Bible Study? Why do I need that? I can study the Bible on my own! Sound familiar? Maybe that's even what you're thinking right now. And yes, you can study the Bible on your own. In fact, you should! Personal Bible study is essential for deepening your relationship with God. So why study with a group? Because God didn't create you to be alone. Small Group Bible study also offers a safe place to get your questions answered. If a small group setting is new to you, you'll be surprised how quickly you'll be helping others find answers as well.
