Faith in Nurture

We explore our faith through opportunities to study scripture and learn more about what we believe.  These opportunities offer a chance to reflect on the meaning of church membership and sacraments, and how to articulate our faith with one another and the world. Opportunities include:

Church School:  Children begin worshipping with their family in the sanctuary.  After the “Word to Young Christians”, they are invited to learn more about God’s love for them through a variety of focused activities.

Bible Studies: Pastor’s Lively Bible Study, we gather every Tuesday at 10:00 am to read the lessons for the upcoming Sunday and discuss them with our pastor, exploring their impact on our daily lives.  There is an ongoing Men’s Bible study group that gathers the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Topsham Fairground’s Cafe for breakfast, fellowship, and study.  Also, we hold short-term Bible studies on specific Bible passages, such as the story of Moses or Holy Week, or books that focus on our faith and spirituality as Christians.  (Watch out calendar for dates of these Bible studies.)
