Sunday Morning Bible Study Groups

 

As is common in the Baptist faith, University Baptist Church offers Sunday morning Bible Study for all ages -- from pre-school through senior adults.  We also offer a nursery and child care for parents with very young children.  All classes begin at 10:00 a.m. and conclude at 10:45 a.m.

                                                           SPRING BIBLE STUDY 

SPECIAL EVENT DURING LENT:
     "Alive to Life!"

 

Intergenerational Lenten Emphasis
Beginning March 10, the frist Sunday of Lent, everyone is invited to participate in Alive to Life!
The seven-week emphasis focuses on having a more abundant life in Christ. Lenten kits are
available which include a workbook with Scripture, writings from spiritual leaders, letters,
poetry, songs & hymns, prayers, coloring pages for children, movie tie-ins for youth,
YouTube links, indoor and outdoor activities, and components for a sacred space setup at
home.

The intention of the Intergenerational Lenten Emphasis is to become aware of and cultivate
the life God calls us to have -- to be alive to this abundant life so that we may be filled up
to the fullness of God!
