Come Join a Bible Study

Bible Studies at Mount Olive

“...they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day…” Acts 17:11

Adult Bible Study Opportunities

Bible Studies at Mount Olive There are three words in that verse that tell us how to “dive” into God’s Word. First, “eagerly”. An attitude of eagerness opens our minds to learn. Second, “examined”. God’s Word is so rich we must not skim it but examine it closely. Third, “every day”. Our need for God’s Word is not occasional but ever day!

Bible Studies offered during the week...

Women's Bible StudyTuesday Women’s Bible Study We will begin our new year on Tuesday, September 12 at 10:30 AM in the Meeting Room. We will continue to study the book of Acts: seeing God's power in action. Synopsis: "Sometimes our lives seem powerless. Not so for the people of the early church. Jesus transformed their lives, and they changed the world! Acts is the extraordinary record of what they did. The power that we see in action in this book is the same power that can transform our lives. Study Acts, and you will begin to understand what the Holy Spirit can do in you, and in the world."

In the Word Bible Study will reconvene on Wednesdays in September. The group is currently studying the book of Luke. We have completed the first nine chapters. On the first day of meeting there will be a short review of the previous chapters and then start on Chapter 10.

The Bible study is open to anyone that is at church between 6:30 and 8:00 PM. The schedule generally follows the confirmation class schedule. Open fellowship is between 6:30 and 7:00 PM with the Bible study being conducted between 7:00 and 8:00 PM. The study is conducted in an open forum format; reading the Word and then discussing meaning and application. The discussion includes individual’s personal experiences and observations. It looks at how does Jesus, as presented in Luke, fit in our lives and our current world. What would the world look like if every person practices:

¨ Do not judge
¨ Do not condemn
¨ Forgive each other
¨ Love your enemies
¨ Do good to those that hate you
¨ Bless those that curse you
¨ Pray for those who mistreat you

Again, if you are at church on Wednesday evenings you are invited to In the Word Bible Study. Contact Ardie Waldo & Avis Lestico, Harold Breitweser, Kurt Larson or Jim & Katie Rootes for more information.
