Here at The Peoples Church, Christian Education is kind of like a buffet — there are options for everyone! There are groups to discuss current events or local issues. There are groups that do book studies or study books of the Bible. There are groups that knit together and others that do yoga together. There are other groups that serve the community in mentoring, serving at Edgewood Village and other mission organizations.
There is a smorgasbord of opportunities to grow in your faith through learning, conversation and service. We understand that people grow in their faith in different ways and our hope is that there is something on the buffet you like and will help you grow. And if you don’t know what you want to be a part of, that is another great thing about a buffet—you can try something and if it is not for you, skip it the next time and find your favorite dish.
*Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, much of our programming has gone virtual. To get more information on how to join our virtual groups please contact our church office at email@example.com.
MEN'S STUDY GROUPS
TUESDAY MORNING MEN’S GROUP
Join the Tuesday Morning Men’s Study from 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. in the Robertson Room. This group reads and discusses books about the bible, faith and life. Join them for a great time of discussion and fellowship. If you have questions about this group contact Pastor Drew.
WOMEN OF PEOPLES CHURCH
As women who share a common faith in the Lord, the Women of Peoples Church come together to demonstrate His love in all areas of life and to grow in Christian faith and responsibility through study, prayer and service.
As church members and friends, we support the ministry of The Peoples Church through giving to Christian Service projects, support and involvement with our four founding denominations, fund raising efforts, fellowship, friendship, hospitality and prayer. We offer programs and engage in conversation on a variety of topics related to our growth as followers of Jesus Christ.
Bible studies are a great opportunity to delve deeper into scripture! The Peoples Church currently offers two Bible studies for adults. Pastor Drew leads a weekly Bible study at 11:00 a.m. on Mondays. Topics have ranged from an overview of the Bible in a year to in-depth studies of Matthew, Daniel, Revelation, and so much more.
Each Wednesday at 9:00 a.m., Dr. Monroe leads the sermon prep Bible study. This is an opportunity to read the scripture for the upcoming Sunday worship service and talk about themes, ideas and direction the sermon might take. No preparation or previous experience necessary! Come for good conversation and new knowledge of Scripture.
Both Drew and Shawnthea's Bible studies are currently hosted on Zoom. Reach out to them if you're interested in joining.
PEOPLES FORUM: Voices of the Community
The Peoples Forum takes place between worship services on Sunday mornings, September - May. These informative presentations give voice to various community members on a wide range of topics.

Please join us at 9:30 a.m. in the Robertson Room!
