Crossways Bible Study (Only during the school year)
Crossways is a “big picture” study of the whole Bible. It gives an overview of each book within a framework for seeing the Bible’s “big story.” It combines Bible reading, commentary, and illustrations to show how the Bible fits together. If you want to know your Bible better, Crossways is for you! Sign up for the new class at church or talk to Pastor Scott.
- Crossways (Year 3): Sundays at 6:00 p.m.
- Crossways (Year 1): Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
Here is what some past and current Crossways participants say about the course:
“Replace your confusion with clarity as Pastor Scott takes you on an eye-opening journey through Crossways and the history surrounding the events of the Bible.” – Shawn Anderson
Year one of Crossways left me eager for year two and three… Find out what you don’t know about the Judges, Kings and biblical figures we thought we knew.” – Gail Telecky
“I am so glad I listened to others’ recommendations about Crossways! I have truly loved digging deeper for a better understanding and grasp of the Bible. So many ‘So that’s why’ and ‘Now I get it’ moments.” – Mary Hodson
“I had never been in a study before. It was way more than I expected!! I told my friends how excited I was and four of them joined in year two. They also agree it is awesome!” – Barb Anderson
