Monday Night Ladies Study

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.  The Monday night Ladies Bible study would like to invite you to a 9 week study: 1 Peter, A Living Hope in Christ. Author Jen Wilkin leads us with a video session to help us expand our understanding of 1 Peter.

Please join us beginning Monday Sept 17 at 7:00pm in the Park Church library. Please call Shari Cooney 725-8332 or the church office 725-4105 to reserve your workbook ($15) by Monday Sept 10. Please prayerfully consider joining us.

Women's Wednesday Morning Bible Study


Wednesday, October 10th at 10:30 a.m. at Nancy Shaffer's home: 10830 West Law Road.

We will spend 4 weeks in the Old Testament Book of Jonah. 


New Sunday Faith Development Study to begin October 21st, 9:00 a.m.

When did God Become a Christian? by David Kalas. Why does God seem so different in the Old Testament than in the New Testament? Led by Pastor Eric in the library. 



Advent is a time for preparation for Christ’s birth.  One of the ways we can prepare is by spending time with God each day through a devotional time of scripture, a story illustrating the scripture and a prayer to help us apply the scripture to our daily lives.  Beginning Sunday, November 11th you can pick up your copy of Daily Guideposts – 25 Devotions for Advent.  Various authors share their personal experiences centered around Jesus and His birth and life.  It will be available in the fellowship area. 

Additionally we always have available The Upper Room for adults and Pockets for children.  And after a short break, the Sweet Blessings Monthly Scripture Writing Plan is available too.  It provides a scripture verse each day that you are to copy while listening to God’s voice to hear what He would have you learn.

Any of these options will only take 5 – 10 minutes of your time.  Please join me in dedicating this Advent season to spending time with God in Scripture and prayer as we prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth, keeping Him in the center of our focus


Reading through the Bible in a Year


Does reading through the Bible next year seem like a great goal but an impossible task?  Maybe you tried last year but didn't quite make it because the plan you chose didn't work for you - don't give up. Maybe you need to try a different plan or just take a little longer with the plan you have.  Or maybe you want to get started this year for the very first time.  During December a variety of plans will be available in the fellowship area that can help guide you through the year on a daily basis.  You can choose to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation or chronologically as events happened or a reading from the Old Testament and the New Testament each day.  Or perhaps you would just like to read the New Testament - there's a schedule that will take you through it in 5 minutes a day for 5 days a week.  If you do your readings on your cell phone or tablet, you might check out a free app such as Bible from Life.Church. also found under Youversion.  Apps like this offer many ways to enhance your daily walk with God, such as daily devotionals and a variety of plans to read through the Bible in a year, including tracking your progress. Whatever method you choose, we pray that your time in the scriptures each day will bring you closer to God in the coming year.
