Methods: How to Read the Bible Well

Have you ever wished you could better understand what you read in the Bible? We’ll share a three-step method of reading scripture. This process will make reading the Bible easier and help you apply it correctly to your life.

Holy Yoga

The class is open to all adults and is focused on deep stretching - yin yoga, Biblical meditation, and peace. The class is restorative in nature with mostly sitting or laying poses. Bring your own yoga mat if you have one, but we will have few extras.


Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir leads hymns and anthems in the sanctuary at our 11:00 am service. The choir presents Lessons and Carols during advent and other special music during the lenten season. Also, each fall, the chancel choir presents the Smiley Gregg Memorial concert to benefit Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Northwest Georgia.
