Knowing. Loving. Serving. Celebrating.

God has created us for community. This need is built into the very fiber of our being, the DNA of our spirit. As Christians, our deepest desire is to see the truth of God’s Word as it influences our relationship with others. We long for a dynamic encounter with God’s Word, intimate closeness with His people, and radical transformation of our lives. But how can we accomplish those three difficult tasks?

The New Community Bible Study Series creates a place for all of this to happen. In-depth Bible study, community building opportunities, and life-changing applications are all built into every session of this small group study series.

The New Community Bible Study series is ideal for use in both a small group setting and for individual study.
