Studying the Bible with other Christians is an important part of growing in Christ at Windom Evangelical Free Church. It is our desire that each member of our church participates in a group outside of the church service with other church members. Why? A Bible study is about more than just reading the Bible. We strive to meet together in Bible study groups to search, ask questions, and apply Biblical truths to our lives. When we study the Bible together, we believe the natural result is change in our own lives. Meeting in a group to study the Bible allows that change to multiply and bless those around us in the church and community.
A men’s or women’s Bible study may happen periodically throughout the year, usually one in the fall and spring, for several weeks at a time. See the church calendar for the schedule of when Bible studies meet during the week. If you are interested in joining a study, let us know, we would love to have you!
In small groups, adults of all ages meet together in homes, often around a meal (kids too!), with distinctly different goals than a Bible study. While the focus of a Bible study centers around the content (the Bible), a small group centers around the people. Small groups grow in friendship and care for one another, praying together, sharing life together, and serving neighbors. Members of a small group will certainly open their Bibles together, but the study of scripture is not the end goal. The purpose of a small group is to grow in relationship and multiply, to invite others and expand the group.
If you want to be involved, we have a group for you to join. Small groups are not always on the church calendar, because groups are responsible to meet regularly throughout the year. Send the office and email and we will connect you with a small group leader.
