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 meets on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM in the Room 1115/Bookstore. We are studying the Old Testament prophetic book of Isaiah, "The Gospel of the Old Testament." "Sometimes we look at our lives or our world and wonder what good could possibly come out of it. That's exactly what we find in the book of Isaiah. Here you'll see how the prophet raises a cry for revival in the midst of a rotting society. And you'll find comfort for your own troubled times." We'd love for you to join us for prayer, fellowship and the study of God's Word. Contact Karen Albu at 763.432.7652 or or Chris Schomburg at at with any questions.

Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study:
The Unforced Rhythms of Grace is a Bible study that will be led by Pastor Jon on Sunday, April 7 at 9:15 AM in Cana Hall. Lent is a season in which the spiritual disciplines are emphasized.

Sunday Morning - “Highlighted Verses” Bible Study: Beginning at 9:00 AM starting September 23, this Bible study focuses on specific verses (from Genesis to Revelation) that people have highlighted (as having special significance) in their Bibles. The study meets in the second floor Meeting Room during the Sunday morning education period. Participation is required. The goal is to develop confidence in sharing one’s faith with others. Participation has resulted in great discussions and sharing.

Small groups, such as LIFE groups, may want to add this type of study to their group’s activities. Sharing the highlighted verses provides others to describe the impact God’s word have on their lives. It can generate all kinds of emotions and feelings. The results are amazing. I would encourage each small group to try this type of study and sharing.

Also, as individuals you can go through your Bible and copy your highlighted verses in one document. It is very interesting to see in a few pages all that you have considered significant to highlight. You will be amazed at the consistency in the Bible and in what you have highlighted. It is also provides an opportunity to reconnect with God and yourself.
