Education and Bible Study

We invite you to open your mind and connect with what is deepest in your heart by joining us for study, conversation, reflection and prayer.

Our classes are designed to be intellectually engaging and spiritually enriching to help you explore what you believe and grow in faith. In some classes you may consider the implications of religious faith for daily living or learn about the Bible and the basic themes of Reformed theology. In others you will experience Christian prayer practices or engage in discussion about a variety of compelling contemporary issues. Bring your curiosity and questions! You will not be told what to think but instead given the opportunity to process ideas with others.

This fall, our classes will be a combination of in-person and virtual connection. Below, you can find detailed descriptions of the classes offered. For more Adult Education resources, such as previous class recordings and supplemental videos, visit the BMPC YouTube channel.
