BIBLICAL TEACHING & LEARNING


sUNDAY SMALL GROUPS

Call it what you want:  Sunday School, Small Groups - the name doesn't matter.  What matters is that we're engaged in learning the Word of God, being taught how to apply it in everyday life, and forming solid relationships with other believers.


The Small Group ministry is the backbone of BHBC.  It's where learning and appropriating biblical truth is forged. People can get lost in a crowd (corporate worship/'big church'), but they connect to a community (small group.)


Further, without a grounded understanding of God's Word we leave ourselves open for what Paul described to the Ephesians as "every wind of teaching."  (Read my blog on this topic here.)


Our teachers are outstanding, demonstrating love and responsible preparation.  For a quick overview of our Small Group Leadership and what they're presently learning together click here.



The Bible


Most people don't know that the Bible is actually an anthology - a collection of books - 66 to be exact.  39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.  Further, it was written over a 1500 year period of time, by over 40 different authors who were everything from kings to peasants to fishermen to poets.  It was written in times of war and in times of peace.  On three different continents in three different languages.  And in a host of literary genres i.e. history, poetry, didactic treatises, biography, and personal correspondence.  Finally, its subject matter includes hundreds of controversial topics.  Yet the biblical authors spoke with harmony and continuity from Genesis to Revelation.  And, above all, there is, amazingly, one single unfolding story:  God’s redemption of mankind.”


One theologian wrote, "No other book has been so chopped, knived, sifted, scrutinized, and vilified.  What book on philosophy or religion or psychology of classical or modern times has been subject to such a mass attack as the Bible?  With such venom and skepticism?  Upon every chapter, line and tenet? But, the Bible is still loved by millions, read by millions and studied by millions.”


One of our goals in our Small Groups is to help people fall in love with there Bible again - or for the very first time.
