With busy schedules and priorities that pull us in multiple directions, it's often hard to find a moment for ourselves to reflect, to pray, to study. If this describes you, this small group is your place to be. What better way to start 2019 than dedicating time for yourself to nurture your relationship with God with the support of others?

Wednesday Night Study
The New Daily Study Bible, 
by William Barclay
Grace Cafe 

This group has been working its way through the New Testament, using William Barclay's The New Daily Study Bible as its guide. As described on, "For more than fifty years and for millions of readers around the world, the New Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. William Barclay's brilliant communication, down-to-earth approach, and sheer enthusiasm have inspired generations of readers." They  are currently finishing Barclay's study of The Letter to the Romans and will soon begin Barclay's study of The Letter to the Hebrews. This is an ongoing Bible study run by Ken Lee. In his words: Our goals for the study are to deepen our understanding of the Word of God and Who Jesus is as revealed to us by the Scriptures of Jesus's life, ministry, death and resurrection. William Barclay is a world-renowned Biblical scholar whose commentary on these Scriptures will help reveal to us the understanding we seek and bring us closer to the God we love and serve. Please feel free to invite others and hope to see you for our study in His Name, and you can feel free to drop in at any time.
