Biblical Studies

Ongoing Reading and Discussing Scripture in Small, Lay-Led Groups

St. Martin’s continues its long history of biblical studies by offering several opportunities to meet weekly with a group to read the scriptures together. All are welcome. There is no homework and Bibles are provided. These small groups offer a process of reading and discussing the Bible guided by open-ended questions and bringing the Word to life through thoughtful conversation with unlimited possibilities for self-discovery.
