The Advent’s Bible and book studies meet throughout the week with talented teams of engaging and faithful leaders, all of whom love the gospel message and wish to inspire that some love in others.

Men’s Bible Study
Lunch is served and the style is a combination of lecture and discussion. We study a single book of the Bible over a period of months and are currently in Matthew.
