Regular Meetings

Weekly meetings:
If you are interested, there is a small group from the Medical Center meeting for Bible study, fellowship, and evangelism this semester.

Time: Thursday evenings, 7:30 pm
Place: alternating between houses (we e-mail address/directions every week)
What to bring: Decided the week before, so if you come this week, nothing! Just yourself, and a friend if you like.
Subject: This is more of a Bible discussion group, but we do try to stick to Scripture. The passage (1-2 chapters) is picked out each week by one of us. We all try to read & think on the passage during the week, and come with our thoughts, ideas, perspectives, and questions for each other. There have been times in the past when we have deliberately/systematically studied books of the Bible or topics, but this is where we are right now.

Every other week, we meet to discuss a Scripture passage. We don’t have an official teacher or leader but try to “sharpen” each other by sharing our thoughts and perspectives on the passage of the week.

On the intervening Thursdays, we host a dinner at one of our houses and invite others to come, specifically those who may not be comfortable with a “Bible study” per se, but who may be interested in church/Christianity. On these days, we do not necessarily study the Scriptures, although we have a passage picked out in case people are interested in discussing it.

We come from various churches in the community and would love to have you join us, whether it is twice a month for dinner, or on a more regular basis. Our group is relatively heterogeneous, with a few seminary students, one or two people who are young, single, and working, a missionary (yup! right here in Rochester – and we need it, too, if you haven’t noticed), and med students.

If you need a ride, please let us know.

Questions? Contact Celeste or Falan, or call 512-743-8141. Also, if the timing is bad for you, we welcome input on better times.
