Bible Study/Study Groups
First Christian Church offers several opportunities for adults to learn about faith, the Bible, and to ask some of the tough questions of life. We seek to be open, reflective and receptive to all who come. This is a place that offers a safe place for your doubts, your joys and your desire to grow deeper in faith, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey.
Whether you are a life-long Christian, or describe yourself as “spiritual, but not religious,” you will find a place at FCCNH.
Bible Study is a big part of First Christian Church North Hollywood in the education and understanding of the bible. On Monday nights we meet to share knowledge and have thought provoking interaction as we study the bible. We meet every Monday at 7:00 pm in the Educational Annex, September – June. Child Care will be provided. Please let us know if you will need this.
The Monday Night Bible study will be on hiatus after June 5th until September. But join us Monday nights, June 10th to August 28th for our FAITH IN FILMS series. More information below.

Sometimes life throws us curveballs. Other times we just roll with the punches. But it always takes a lot of strength to make changes in our lives or in our world. This year for our Faith in Film series we want to share stories of people who either through circumstance or conscious decision-making created huge changes by their decision to “Make Something Happen!”

Our Tuesday morning “Spiritual Group” intentionally offers both Bible Study and an opportunity for spiritual growth. We begin each session with Lectio Divina, an ancient practice of praying the scripture, before we begin our lessons. This is not the same lesson from the Monday night group, and it is offered in a more informal structure. We explore questions and ideas about what it means to live as Christians in a modern culture that sometimes scoffs at faith, or tries to narrow one’s belief to either/or choices. Life is often complex, and sometimes there are just no easy answers to some of our most difficult questions.
We meet every Tuesday from 10:00am – 11:30am in the Annex, August – June.
