Adult Bible Studies

We have a variety of Bible Studies to choose from.  It's a fantastic way to dig deeper into God's Word and fellowship with others at Risen Savior.  

Adult Forum

This adult Bible study meets every Sunday at 8:40 am in the Fellowship Hall.  Topic is: "Christianity and the Competition."  Our country is littered with competing religions & philosophies, each claiming to be right.  We'll look briefly at the secular sources on which the groups base their beliefs and compare them with the Bible.  We'll pay special attention to the more popular groups in our country, such as: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientology, and various cults.  We'll also offer a Christian response, with the assistance of a video by Prof. Paul Maier and other Christian authors.  Join us every Sunday at 8:40 am -9:40 am in the Fellowship Hall (note the time is different than the other classes). Pastor Hal & Julie will prepare a brief outline of the material each week.

Both these studies meet in the Conference Room each Sunday morning. You’re always welcome to join either!   

8:40 AMTHE GOSPEL OF LUKE. Movin’ Up!  - Luke 13:18-14:35 People often make distinctions among themselves based on status (wealth, family, power, health, etc.). Jesus wanted his disciples – and us! – to see things God’s way: that such differences don’t matter to God.

10:10 AM:  THE GOSPEL OF MARK – The Eyes of Faith (Mark 9-10). Wrong expectations prevented many people whom Jesus met from seeing who he really was. Our expectations might also prevent us from seeing Jesus clearly—expectations about the way God will work or his plans for us. Let’s examine our expectations and take a fresh look at Jesus through the eyes of faith.
