Some Bible studies are gender-specific, and others are open to everyone. The Advent’s Bible studies meet throughout the week and are usually led by the same people each week; the style of the group typically depends on the its size. The Advent has a talented team of engaging and faithful Bible study leaders, all of whom love the Gospel message and wish for others to mine the riches of the Bible.
In addition to our many Sunday morning offerings and other special classes throughout the year, we offer the following regularly scheduled weekday Bible studies:
