Bible Study

Evening Bible Group

If you’ve come to PACC for just a short time or for a long time,

and if you’re interested in some in depth reading of the Bible,

if you know a lot about the Bible or not much,

if you’d enjoy the company of others who are interested in discussing Biblical texts or themes,

if you’d welcome a small-group experience with supportive people who are not afraid to ask questions because they don’t have all the answers,

if you can imagine yourself seeking a spiritual presence with others who are seeking the same thing,

if you’d like to discover how the ancient biblical texts can be relevant and meaningful in the twenty-first century…

we would enjoy welcoming you at Evening Bible Group.

Started by our recently retired Pastor, Rev. Dr. William A. Albright, almost two decades ago, the Bible study has become an integral part of PACC. With a group of committed “regulars” and those who drop in periodically, we bond with each other as we learn and grow.

PACC’s Interim Minister, The Reverend Jill Small, has a long-standing interest in exegesis (the critical interpretation of a text) with particular expertise in the study of Hebrew scripture. Jill will be leading the Bible study this year with a very interactive approach, so it’s work and it’s fun!

We usually meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. We gather at 7:30 p.m., allowing a few minutes for “check-in,” then have our discussion on a particular text or texts, or sometimes a theme, from the Bible. We meet for an hour and a half — ending promptly at9:00. Join us in the Fellowship Room, the accessible room, with the Dallin stained glass windows, like the one in the photo above, alongside the Paul Revere Road entrance to the church building.

If you’d like to try our group out to see if it might be for you, bring along your favorite Bible, if you have one. If you don’t have one you want to bring, we can loan you one. Invite a friend. All are welcome. No prior experience or knowledge is necessary.

Come with an open mind and heart, a listening ear, and a non-judgmental spirit.

During the month of September 2016, we are studying the First Book of Samuel from the Old Testament.
