Bible Studies

Bible studies are a great place for adults to learn and grow in Christ alongside one another.  Our current Bible studies are divided into men's and women's groups, which allow men and women to find others they can identify with.  Although each study and group is unique, all Bible studies offer time for Bible teaching and/or facilitation, discussion, prayer, conversation and encouragement in a laid-back atmosphere. Having separate men's and women's groups allows for support that you can sometimes find best with those of the same gender.  Bible studies often serve as a great place to develop accountability and encourage one another in your daily walk.  Bible studies typically meet during the school year and take a break over the summer months.  They are open to any adult at any time.  Whether you come occasionally or every week, you will be blessed and grow deeper in you faith.

Ladies Afternoon Prayer and Bible Study

1st Tuesday of each month:  12:30pm - 2:30pm; October date start TBD
Location: Room 214

Current Study: Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions
Coordinator: Lisa McElhinny

Instead of a more typical Bible study, this gathering of women is more of a social and support group.  It's a time to come together in prayer over each other, along with fellowship over tea and desserts.  Looking at scripture is truly guided by the Lord and any devotional materials He provides to this group is always a blessing.  The group is mainly attended by women in their middle years and those in retirement, but women of any age are always welcome!

God’s Word in Isaiah 66:12 likens peace to a river that flows; however truth is like a rock, steady and unchanging in Christ, our Firm Foundation and Cornerstone. More and more, we must anchor ourselves to the truth or risk being drowned in the current of popular opinions adamantly expressed by the world.  Thankfully, Truth has a Name and it is Adamant with a Capitol “A” (Ezekiel 3:9).  Jesus is our Rock Who clearly provides the Anchor we need in turbulent times.  If you have ever felt tossed, lost or seasick navigating the stormy seas of political and cultural unrest, especially as it spills over into legislation, this new DVD study hosted by Lisa Bevere will hopefully help to restore your sense of security and retain your peace, guiding you to speak the truth in love, or say nothing at all, at the LORD’s Leading, with complete confidence in Christ.  The Lancaster Presbyterian Church Ladies of Afternoon Prayer and Bible Study group invites you to join us for a couple hours each First Tuesday of the Month from October to June beginning at 12:30 pm in the Upper Classroom to firm up our faith.  Feel free to bring friends.  Tea and dessert will be provided.  Questions may be directed to Lisa McElhinny.

Gathering in His Name Women's Bible Study

Thursday Mornings: 10:00-11:30am; Start date TBD

Location: Waith Fellowship Hall

Current Study: TBD
Coordinator: Diane Carlsen
Teacher: KC Carlsen

Continuing the study of the Book of Matthew will encourage you, challenge you, instruct you and motivate you.  Women of all ages are invited!

In addition to studying the book of Matthew, each week we will  pray for one another, receive a devotional thought, have time to share, and encourage one another. Delicious treats round out the morning.  Unique to this study is the group of women that make up the group.   It is comprised of women from 30 to 99 and many ages in between.  There are stay-at-home moms, women that work part-time, as well as retired women in this group. You'll also find women from a variety of local churches attending each week.  Stop in one week to get a taste of this group.

Childcare is provided in our preschool/nursery room for those attending the study.
