A Community Following Jesus: Bible Studies
By Pastor Ben Vineyard
As a “Community Following Jesus” we cherish opportunities to get together with one another to encourage each other in the walk of faith. Below, you’ll find several opportunities for such gatherings. Each of these groups is open to new participants; each will welcome you with great warmth, happy to receive you as a partner in the faith journey.
New groups are also encouraged. If you have a topic you’d like to pursue or group you would like to start, contact Pastor Benjamin Vineyard, firstname.lastname@example.org, to make it happen.
Please also see our information on Life Together Groups, which are new group starts that focus on firsthand spirituality: studying and applying the Scriptures ourselves, relational openness, and living out our discipleship in the communities in which God has placed us. Again, contact Pastor Ben for more details!
The Gospel of Luke
