Bible Classes

At Skillman, we intentionally pursue spiritual growth for all stages of life – children, families, singles and older adults. An important avenue for developing spiritually is the study of God’s Word. Bible classes provide a place to connect, a place to belong, and a place to grow. These classes are a venue to experience the life-changing power of the Word of God in the context of meaningful relationships. Skillman is committed to the study and practice of God’s Word. Spending time in the study and application of the Scriptures is a very important life element for the people of this church. A wide variety of classes meet each week to welcome all and nurture our people in their faith journey.

There is plenty of opportunity for both fun and study during this engaging class time. 

In addition to having this conversation on Wednesday nights, we also will be posting a recording of this conversation onto Skillman’s podcast feed the following Monday so that all can participate in these conversations, whether in person on Wednesday nights, or via podcast while washing the dishes, driving to work, or walking the dog (or any other way that you listen to podcasts).
