Bible Study/Study Groups

First Christian Church offers several opportunities for adults to learn about faith, the Bible, and to ask some of the tough questions of life. We seek to be open, reflective and receptive to all who come. This is a place that offers a safe place for your doubts, your joys and your desire to grow deeper in faith, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey.

Whether you are a life-long Christian, or describe yourself as “spiritual, but not religious,” you will find a place at FCCNH.

Monday Night

Bible Study is a big part of First Christian Church North Hollywood in the education and understanding of the bible. On Monday nights we meet to share knowledge and have thought provoking interaction as we study the bible. We meet every Monday at 7:00 pm in the Educational Annex, September – June. Child Care will be provided. Please let us know if you will need this.

In place of our Monday Night Bible Study during the summer, we show a series of movies and then engage in conversation about how these stories speak to our faith and values.

Faith in Film 2014 Theme: “Bible Verses” Films

Stories have the amazing ability to convey deep spiritual truths in ways that simple conversation or a lecture cannot. This is perhaps why there are so many stories in our bible, and why Jesus so often used parable to express deep truths about God, or the reign of God, the love of God and the expansive grace of God.

For our 2014 Faith in Film series, we have paired a Bible verse or story with each of the films we are showing. Please join us on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm for the months of July and August for our summer film nights.

Tuesday Morning

Our Tuesday morning "Spiritual Group group" intentionally offers both Bible Study and an opportunity for spiritual growth. We begin each session with Lectio Divina, an ancient practice of praying the scripture, before we begin our lessons. This is not the same lesson from the Monday night group, and it is offered in a more informal structure. We explore questions and ideas about what it means to live as Christians in a modern culture that sometimes scoffs at faith, or tries to narrow one's belief to either/or choices. Life is often complex, and sometimes there are just no easy answers to some of our most difficult questions.

We meet every Tuesday from 10:00am – 11:30am in the Youth Hut, September - June.
