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.

Monday Evenings, January 29, February 5 & 12 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
“LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. This is the beginning of a statement prepared by Pope Francis, reminding Christians of all persuasions that the earth is the Lord’s, and we are its stewards. Join us on as we learn about issues related to the environment and how we offer a faithful response to the care of God’s creation.
January 29 – “Dr. Keeling’s Curve” Mike Farrell portrays atmospheric scientist, David Keeling (1928-2005) whose pioneering work on CO2 gave the world its first early warnings about the dangers of human induced global warming. We will be joined by Mike Farrell this evening for a Q&A after the film.
February 5 – “Blue Theology” We will hear a speaker from “Blue Theology” about the need to understand stewardship of our oceans.

Faith In Films
In the summer, when the Monday Night Bible Study is on hiatus, we have s summertime movie night in its place. No charge for admission and refreshments are provided.
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.
