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.
Embracing Forgiveness: What it Is and What it Isn’t
Series begins Monday, April 24
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the Annex
Forgiveness is a gift, not an obligation. It’s not a job or a task. It is not conditional act to earn God’s love. It is a spiritual gift given freely by a God who wants to connect with us.
This series features Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, an Episcopal Priest, Spiritual Director and author of “Embracing Forgiveness” and is a five-week study using video and discussion.
The sessions include:
April 24 – “Seventy-times Seven: Really?”
May 1 – “You Have Heard it Said”
May 8 – “Chipping Away”
May 15 – “How to Start”
May 22 – “Why Forgive?”
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.
