Bible Study & Support Groups


Bible Study & Support Groups

At St. Andrew's we offer both short and long term opportunities to study the Bible and grow deeper in your faith.  We also offer periodic support groups that give you a chance to connect with others who might be going through similar life experiences.  These groups typically meet at the church for a specific study and over a specific period of time.  For more information on upcoming Bible Studies or Support groups contact Mandy Barkhaus.

Just Walk Across the Room Bible Study
This study is about personal evangelism with a natural, relational approach that follows Jesus’ own example.   When Jesus launched his public ministry, he had no formula and no script-just an offer of grace and peace to people like us, with whom we have contact inside AND outside the walls of St. Andrew’s.  The author invites us to step out of our “Circle of Comfort” and into encounters with people who long for someone to take an interest in them.  People who are searching for comfort, peace and strength in their lives.  And we can be that someone by reaching out to them with our smile, our encouragement, our transparency, and our friendship  Find out how you can make the difference of an eternity for someone standing near you in a natural and personal way.  It all starts with a walk across the room.

When:  Sunday, September 15 - November 24
Time:  4:00-5:30pm
Where:  Lower Level 1 
Cost:  $20 (If cost is an issue, please let Pastor Mandy know.)
Facilitator:  Jon Radebaugh
Free childcare available upon request.
