COME JOIN US at 10:00 am on Sunday.  This is the perfect time for new people to try out a new class!!

#1 – DiGGing Deeper via Zoom or at 10:00am

The DIGGing Deeper Sunday morning study group is starting a study of the book of Revelation beginning Sunday, September 6 and continuing for 12 weeks.  We will be using the in depth study guide "Revelation, The Christian's Ultimate Victory" by John MacArthur, author of the widely used "MacArthur Study Bible."  MacArthur makes a verse by verse and often word or phrase by word or phrase examination of the writings of the Apostle John as revealed to him by Jesus.  And MacArthur follows up with questions of understanding and application.  Revelation contains so much imagery and symbolism that a 12 week study cannot examine all of it in detail.  However, you will finish this study with a much better understanding of the Revelation of Jesus and what the future holds for Christians.  You are invited to join us whether we are meeting via Zoom or in person and whether we are meeting at 10:00 Sunday morning or some other yet to be determined time.  For more information contact Don Allaman by email at or by phone at 724-816-6266.

#2 - Women at the Well Discussion Class (Library) TBA --

Women's Bible Study

NEW! Women’s 6-week Bible Study beginning Thursday morning September 10th at 9:00am in New Fellowship Hall (**Please note new location):  The Names of God by Melissa Spoelstra.


Sometimes God feels so far away and it can be hard to make sense of the injustice and suffering in the world.  Other times His instructions in Scripture seem confusing to us and we have so many questions about Him and for Him.  How can we know God better?


One of the ways God makes Himself known to us is through His names in the Bible.  Our names help identify and distinguish us.  God’s names go a step further:  they reveal God to us.  Studying God’s names helps us grow in our understanding of His character, gives us a more complete view of Him, and grow closer to Him.  In The Names of God Bible study, Melissa Spoelstra leads women on an exploration of the many names of our God—from El and Elohim to Yahweh and its many combinations to names such as Abba, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. 

As we study the names of God, our ideas about God will become more grounded in what His names tell us, and thus more personal, allowing a greater trust in Him to share the details of our lives. Whether having walked with God for many years or just starting out in a relationship with Him, by the end of this study we will not only know more about God but will know Him better—because through the discovery of God’s names, we will discover Him!  Along the way, we will also learn about the lives of women from history, like Susanna Wesley, Harriet Tubman, Catherine Marshall, Amy Carmichael and others who trusted in and leaned on these names of God and what they meant.

**Please contact the Church Office or Cathy Dambach to register so that we can prepare and sanitize the room safely and order workbooks.  Workbooks are $13.00 (not necessary, but strongly encouraged).  Masks and safe distancing will be required.  Hope to see you there!
