We offer In-home Bible Studies, as well as a few resources to allow you to study on your own.
Regular Bible studies are important, however the Bible can be a large and overwhelming book to tackle by yourself. Additionally, it's not even in historical order, so where do you start?
Sometimes it's helpful to have someone that can lead you through various topics. We aren't going to tell you what the Bible says but we can help you with Topical Bible Studies that let you read the verses for yourself. The majority of what we will share will be verses.
You can also use the same form to just request more information. Maybe you'd like to know if there are some options on studying on your own? We can definitely give you some resources.

The Divine Presence With Us Always, February 25
God’s Character and Providences
Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Psalm 139:7, 8.
The psalmist represents the presence of the Infinite One as pervading the universe. “If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.” We can never find a solitude where God is not.
The Lord God omnipotent, who reigneth in the heavens, declares, “I am with you.” He assures His people that those who are obedient are in a position where He can bless them, to the glory of His name.... He will be a present help to all who serve Him in preference to serving self.
Although God dwells not in temples made with hands, yet He honors with His presence the assemblies of His people. He has promised that when they come together to seek Him, to acknowledge their sins, and to pray for one another, He will meet with them by His Spirit.
When Christ ascended to heaven, the sense of His presence was still with His followers. It was a personal presence, full of love and light....
Henceforth through the Spirit, Christ was to abide continually in the hearts of the children. Their union with Him was closer than when He was personally with them. The light, and love, and power of the indwelling Christ shone out through them, so that men, beholding, “marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13. All that Christ was to the disciples, He desires to be to His children today.
We may be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Receiving Christ, we are clothed with power. An indwelling Saviour makes His power our property.... Christ’s presence in the heart is a vitalizing power, strengthening the entire being.
Never feel that Christ is far away. He is always near. His loving presence surrounds you.
