Community Bible study

The Temple-Belton Community Bible Study adult evening class is continuing to register members for a 30-week, in-depth interdenominational Bible study of the Gospel of John.

The class meets weekly live online on Zoom. The class is open to all adults. Individuals may choose to participate in live online core groups for men, women, or married couples.

Each week, participants receive a reading commentary on the previous week’s topic and a set of questions to work on each day covering the next week’s reading. These questions are discussed in small groups live online. Following the small group sessions, there is a short teaching over the same section of scripture which is on YouTube via a link to registered participants. The class will finish April 30.

For information or to register, visit templebeltoneve. or call 254-231-2393 during regular work hours.
