Here’s a snapshot of what makes this Bible Study unique…

  • We call our method “Drawing on the Text”
  • We study the upcoming Sunday texts
  • The readings are printed on 11×17 paper with large margins so there is plenty of room to draw, underline, doodle and make notes on the text
  • After a brief intro, we spend the first few minutes in personal reading and prayer with background worship music
  • This personal time makes our discussions all the richer with questions and insights from the group
  • Pr. Tom prepares additional insights to the texts, but this is not a lecture heavy method
  • We represent a diversity of backgrounds, theologies and levels of biblical knowledge. There is a place for anyone.
