Women’s Bible Study
Led by Linda Hance
Thursday 8:00 a.m. at the church
This class is a scripture-based format, generally using published Bible studies as a beginning, supplemented by commentaries, witnessing, and prayer. The group is made up of women aged 23 to 65-plus years who also enjoy an early start on the day.
As a group, we select the subject to be studied, which usually involves three or four series over the year. We expect and welcome class participation. Some of our members have been participating for many years, and lately we’ve been blessed with some people of other churches joining our Bible study. We believe we are richer for this reason. We recently studied “Just Give Me Jesus,” by Anne Graham Lotts and will be starting a sequel to “Being a Mary in a Martha World,” this fall.
Men’s Bible Study
2nd and 4th Saturdays 8:30am at Denny’s
The men of Mattoon First meet at 8:30 am on every second and forth Saturday at Denny’s in Mattoon, for food, fellowship and growth. We buy our own breakfast and share our thoughts on a topic of relevance every month. The meeting is over by 9:30 am but some men leave earlier as needed. Dress is casual and the atmosphere is inclusive.
