New Zoom Bible Study for Men & Women

The book of James is the wisdom book of the New Testament (written in a similar style as the Old Testament book of Proverbs).

It may be the oldest book in the New Testament.  The author’s main concern is how a Christian is to live out his faith on a day-to-day basis.  It is very applicable to the 21st century.

This new Zoom study will begin Sunday, October 25 at 7 PM.

If you are married, single, experienced in Bible study or never done a small group study, please consider trying this class out.  Dennis Rich will lead the study, if you have any questions please contact him at 224-520-2831 or email him at

You can join using your computer, tablet, smart phone, or by dialing in to the meeting from any phone (just to listen, not to see).

Never used Zoom yet?  Contact Dennis and he will help you get started.

Wisdom for Living Women’s Bible Study via Zoom

Change: Facing the Unexpected

By Beth Severson

Dealing with change is difficult.  Along with disruption, change often brings distress, discouragement, grief, and isolation.  Yet change stretches us to grow in our relationship with God, building character and letting God accomplish His purpose in us.  This study features people all through the Bible who faced difficult changes. This Bible study will help you become better equipped to rely on God as your greatest resource through adversity.
