Bible study and spiritual enrichment have played a large role at Willowbrook from its beginning. Many opportunities are available to meet the need for study.
DISCIPLE Bible Study
The DISCIPLE Bible Studies series is an ongoing study at Willowbrook. The series includes: DISCIPLE I, Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study; DISCIPLE II, Into the Word Into the World; DISCIPLE III, Remember Who You Are; and DISCIPLE IV, Under The Tree of Life. To get involved in one of these studies check with the church office.
Disciple II will be offered on Friday afternoons from 1:00 – 3:00 pm in the Library Lounge beginning September 16th. This is an in-depth 32 week study of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts. Please order the Disciple II participant book from Cokesbury.com ($40.00). Contact Pastor Sande for more information.
Covenant Bible Study
Living The third and final session of Covenant Bible Study, Trusting the Covenant, will meet at 7 pm on Tuesday evenings beginning on April 18, 2017. We will meet through May 16th, take a two week break, and resume from June 6th to June 20th.
We welcome new members to join our ongoing class as we resume. Come consider such topics as life together, praise and lament, tragedy, and hope from the perspective of our life in Christian community and our everlasting relationship with God. If you are not already a member of the class, please contact Pastor Sande to order a participant book.
The Seekers Adult Sunday School
The Seekers Class meets at 11:00 in the library. All are invited.
Pastor Steve will lead a 6-week study of the Bible called “Bible 101: A Brief Survey of the Old and New Testaments” on Thursday mornings beginning May 4, 2017 at 9:30 am in the Library Lounge. This study will offer a brief overview of all 66 books of the Bible focusing on basic themes and discovering how the books of the Bible connect and form a scriptural tapestry.
The first four sessions will look at The Pentateuch, the Historical books, the Wisdom Literature and the Prophetic Literature. The final two sessions will focus on the Gospels and the Letters. The only book required is your Bible (and a pen). We will meet in the Library Lounge. Everyone is welcome!
Lenten Bible Studies
Lenten Bible Studies offer small groups short term Bible study, during the season of Lent. Groups meet at the church or in homes using selected material each year.
