Bible Studies

When talking about the study of God's Word, there seem to be many ways to go about it... watching a DVD, listening to a CD, downloading a Bible App, or podcast. All of these are great tools and should be encouraged. However, the one we like the best is getting a group of people together at church, in a restaurant or at someone's home and discussing, learning, sharing and growing together through the Scriptures. This creates community, relationship building and spurs on spiritual growth. God works through His Word. Join a group today!

You've heard of the 3 R's of academics... we practice and encourage the 4 R's of studying the Bible:

1. Read

2. Reflect

3. Respond

4. Remember

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Wednesday nights are special nights at Bethlehem. All are welcome to join us as we come together around the Word. We meet every Wednesday night at 7 pm at the cottage located at 1337 Palm Circle. The format is Scripture reading and round table discussion. A praise hymn, prayer session and an opening study on the Psalms or Proverbs is also included. On the 1st Wednesday of the month we join for food and fellowship after the study at European Street Restaurant. This is always a lot of fun and is a time to share, connect and get to know each other better. Life is better at the beach studying the Bible.

Sunday Morning Classes

Choices! BLC offers two choices on Sunday mornings to dive deeper into God's Word. These classes are a time to get to know other members and guests of Bethlehem. Join us for fellowship - grab a donut or a bagel and then pull up a chair, it will be an interesting ride into the majesty of God's plan of redemption.

  • Reading the Psalms with Luther - One of our favorite books of the Bible is the Psalms and it is filled with verses that are useful for us at many and various times and circumstances in our lives.  Come and join us for a cup of coffee, tea, or juice and discuss the Psalms with us.
