  • When is Bible Study taught?

    Mondays at 5:30pm ET

  • Is it in person or online?

    Bible studies are taught online as a Zoom webinar. It is view only, so no one can see you.

  • How do I sign up?

    Click the "Register Here" button to sign up. All you need is an email address and name. You will receive a confirmation email with all of the pertinent webinar details.

  • What if I lose my confirmation email, how do I log on?

    Each Monday about an hour before the study, you will receive a reminder email from Zoom with the log in info.

  • What if I can't make it on Monday nights?

    No problem! All studies are recorded. Every registrant receives a link to the study on Tuesday mornings. You can view the lesson as much as like until the following Monday.

  • What if I don't know a lot about the Bible or if I really believe it? What if I am just curious? Am I welcome to learn and explore my faith here?

    Absolutely! The thing that makes this ministry a great place for you is that no one can see you, nor will you be put on the spot to speak. You can watch wherever you feel comfortable and maintain as low a profile as you want. You can even submit your questions anonymously.

  • Do I have to be a member of a particular church or ministry to register?

    Nope. All are welcome.

  • What if I have a question?

    There is a Q&A session after each study! You can submit questions in the Q&A section or in the chat. You also have the option of submitting anonymous questions in the Q&A section of the webinar.

  • Is there a fee to attend the Bible Study?

    None. The Bible Study is made possible by the generosity of those who are willing to give.
