Biblical Studies

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. New participants are welcome at any time. All reading and discussion is contained within the sessions, and by design there is no homework. Come and go as you need to.

Bringing the Word to life through thoughtful conversation provides unlimited possibilities for discovery.
