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 a.m. 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.


The Gospel According to Luke
The Gospel According to Mark

Both sessions will meet in the church library.  For more details, contact Barry Ritchie at   or (480) 839-1382.  

8:40 amTHE GOSPEL OF LUKE - Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? (Luke 4:14-6:11)As His ministry began, the people who met Jesus all met the same person, but their reactions differed markedly – amazed, curious, thrilled, or threatened. Today, Jesus gets a similar range of reactions from those who encounter Him. What accounts for such differences? Come and discuss with us!

10:10 am:  THE GOSPEL OF MARK - Excuses Don’t Work (Mark 3). As Jesus preached in Galilee, many had the chance to follow him but chose not to – they felt the cost would be just too high. As Mark’s gospel shows, we simply cannot serve Jesus if we will not follow Him.  Join us to see how Jesus called willing disciples to himself and how we can more closely follow him.
