Have you tried Wednesday night home Bible study? Whether it's the youth group meeting at the Fishers' house, or other folks meeting at the Holts', it's a great time for learning and fellowship.
A typical Wednesday night at the Holts' house starts about 6pm when people arrive for dinner. There's always some kind of soup, plus tea and coffee; someone usually brings a dessert or side to share. This week we were treated to Sandra's homemade bread, Jan's homemade carrot-ramen salad, and Sylvia's homemade peach cobbler cake. And just as important as those who bring food are those who bring appreciative appetites! It is so sweet to laugh, talk and eat together.
Not everybody comes early for dinner, of course. At 6:30 we are ready to begin our Bible study. We start with all of us together, and then separate into smaller groups. This way we are able to have better participation-- everybody gets a chance to talk. We are currently reading and discussing the book of Hebrews, chapter by chapter. It is a pretty interesting book! And how wonderful to have people from a variety of backgrounds searching the scripture together-- from folks who have studied scripture for years, to those who come to it with fresh eyes, and everyone in between.
The hour goes quickly, and before we know it, it is 7:30. As we close out our evening together, we know that we have not only grown in our knowledge of God, but in our love for each other.
We would love to have you join us!
