These are gatherings where CitF members and friends can explore faith and deepen fellowship.
Small Group Bible Study
The Sunday Small Group Bible Study meets each Sunday at 9:00 am in the Multipurpose Room, where the topic is the sermon Bible lesson of the day. (See “This Sunday” website page for that scripture lesson.)
Men’s Small Group Bible Study
The Men’s Small Group meets each Thursday, 10AM in the church’s Multipurpose Room. NT Wright’s “Acts for Everyone,” Part Two, is the study guide. Men are invited for a deeper look at Scripture and great fellowship, or contact Bob Axley for questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women’s Bible Study
Women’s Bible Study next meets Thursday, August 1, 10:30 am–12:00, at The Beach and Tennis Club, 1576 Cypress Dr, Pebble Beach. We are beginning “Searching the Symbols,” a deep dive into understanding religious symbolism, as well as biblical study of the ritual symbols of worship, such as baptism, confirmation, marriage, etc. (called “sacraments”).
To further that study, we’ll read best seller, “Searching for Sundays,” by acclaimed writer Rachel Held Evans. We’ll read “Searching” in tandem with “The Bible and the Sacraments” Participant Workbook. For more information about book purchases, please contact Church Administrator Terri McPherson.
Always free and newcomers welcome.
