"Sola Scriptura"....Scripture Alone. One of the tenets of Lutheran beliefs is diligent study of God's Word, the Bible. Adult Bible study at Pacific Hills is grounded in Scripture itself.
Our primary adult Bible study is held Sunday morning between services, during the education hour, in Acker Hall on the lowest level. The program is typically focused on the day's church readings (pericope), and includes both small group discussion and pastor-led Scripture lessons.
On Wednesday evenings, a Bible study for women is conducted by a lay leader.
On occasion, other topical studies are held. A seasonal message or theme may be presented, or a visiting pastor or missionary may provide a one-session study. A lay leader may occasionally lead Bible study with direction from the pastor.
