Thursday 9:30 AM – Bible Study
The Thursday morning Bible study is led by Jerry Heeren. Together they take turns reading through books of the Bible verse by verse. Recently the group finished reading through Acts and the 12 books of the Minor Prophets. During 2022, they will read through the Gospel of Mark looking at what Mark included and why compared to the other three Gospels.
Wednesday 6:30 PM – Exploring the Faith Class
The Exploring the Faith Class is led by Pastor Andy after our Family Night Dinner during the school year. The goal of this class is to provide a setting for Christians and non-Christians of the Christian faith as God has revealed Himself in Scripture. Currently, the class is walking through various teachings of the Church and seeing where these teachings are found in the Bible. We are also discussing why different Christian denominations have differing beliefs on these doctrines and how these variances impact our understanding of God and salvation and the way we live our lives in relationship to God and each other. The previous series have compared and contrasted the teachings of other religions with those of Christianity and the evidence of the historical resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth from the dead.
Sunday 9:30 AM – Bible Discussions
There are two Bible discussion opportunities available at Oak Road on Sunday mornings. Pastor Andy leads one of these discussions in the Fellowship Hall. Discussions are sometimes topical, seasonally themed or based on current events, or reading through a book of the Bible together. The other Bible discussion is led by Jerry Heeren in our Library’s meeting space. This discussion group meets with an open mind for discussion and sharing with the guiding rule that at least one Bible verse must be used in the conversation.
Women’s Bible Study
Oak Road has a Women’s Bible Study group that meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 9:30 to 11 AM for Bible study and discussion and prayer with one another. Refreshments are shared. Delores Cheatwood leads this study and they meet in the Library’s meeting space.
Men’s Bible Study
Oak Road has a Men’s Breakfast the first and third Saturdays of the month. The breakfast is served at 8 AM in our Fellowship Hall with a Bible study and prayer session led after the breakfast by Jerry Rausch. Topics usually focus on Biblical prophecy, checking viral testimony videos with the revelation of God’s Word, the intersection of politics and current events with the Christian faith and walk, and the importance of the blood of Jesus shed on the cross. The meeting ends by 10 AM.
