    Berea Study Group
    Believers in Berea were described as open-minded, eager to hear the message, and searchers of Scripture (Acts 17.)  Discovery of truth comes from a place that is safe to ask questions and nurture discussion.  The Berea Study Group seeks to create this space through book study on the 3rd Thursday of each month, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm in Room 278.  Questions?  Contact Steve Sowers at  .
