God's Vision, Our Mission: To Build and Strengthen Relationships with Jesus Christ and Each Other
Relationships don't just happen, we need to cultivate friendships. A small group Bible study can be the place where it is safe to share out thoughts about God's Word. A place to get prayer support, and encouragement in times of trouble. A place to share the joys and blessings that Jesus Christ provides for us.
Monday Evening Ladies' Bible Class
Meeting Time: 6:30 to 8:00 PM
Is there something in your life that is causing a problem? It could be a habit to break, a goal to accomplish, or a lingering project to complete. What if we, like Nehemiah, perserved with single-minded focus and trusted God to accomplish something incredible?
Nehemiah may not be the first Biblical example who comes to mind when we talk about perserverance, but we look to his example to discern helpful steps that we can apply on our journey of change. God, through the life of Nehemiah, provides insight into how we can respond to struggles - the problems - in our life.
Through this eight-lesson journey, we walk with Nehemiah from Persia to Jerusalem as God gives him the strength to persevere past seemingly insurmountable obstacles into His redeeming grace. We discover the power of prayer in perseverance. Each lesson includes a video segment that digs deeper into Scripture and provides life applications.
We meet most Monday evenings. Come, join us!
Wednesday Morning Ladies' Bible Class
Meeting Time: 9:30 to 11:15 AM on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Wednesdays, September through May
We are digging into God's Word in 1st Corinthians. It is a letter that Paul wrote to the Christians in Corinth. They faced many of the conflicts that Christians today encounter as they seek to live their faith in a culture that contradicts Christian beliefs and principles. The letter is practical, presenting everyday problems confronting Christians in the world. It is helpful, supplying God's answers to daily problems.
We have tea, coffee, refreshments and encouragement of other faithful women as we delve into what God is speaking to us from his Word.
Please plan to join us!
Thursday Men in the Morning
Meeting Time: 6:00 to 7:00 AM
Men from Zion and from other chuches in the community gather at Zion every Thursday morning. We begin each session with prayer requests for individuals or groups. We then transition to a Bible Study. Our current study is entitled "Bible Translations: Gender Neutrality and Chiasms." We are looking at how translators of the NIV, NLT, ESV and CSB approached the issue of gender-inclusivity. We also are looking at the central points of a selection of Biblical chiasms. A chiasm is a literary device that is common in ancient Greek, Latin and Near Eastern languages and literature, and there are hundreds of chiasms throughout the Bible. Through the fellowship that is enjoyed, participants respond by actively supporting those in need. We unite around community needs through donations of time, talents and monetary resources.
