At Woodlawn, we offer Sunday morning Bible Study opportunities for all ages. We offer classes for mixed genders, specific genders, and multi-generations. Our adult classes range from college to senior adults. In addition to Bible study, Sunday School classes provide a small group setting in which individuals can bond together deeply and serve the Lord together. Check out this MAP for a description of our Sunday School classes and where they are located on our church campus. If you would like some help connecting with or locating a Sunday School class, please contact Pastor Laramie.
Life Groups are designed to be missional communities that aid in our spiritual growth. Each group is a same gender small group that meets regularly for the purpose of accountability and encouragement. Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m. is provided as an opportunity for Life Groups to meet on the church campus while childcare is provided. Some Life Groups also choose to meet away from the church campus at this time or during the week. Each group meeting includes meaningful prayer time, a discussion of Scripture (each group member follows the same Bible reading plan during the week), accountability, and encouragement for personal evangelism. Life Groups are also encouraged to participate in monthly missional endeavors. To connect with a group, fill out the form below. For more information, contact Pastor Laramie.

On Sundays, beginning February 9 at 3:30 p.m., Pastor Lewis will be teaching an 8-week discipleship course on teaching the Bible. The course will focus primarily on the study and preparation that goes into getting the text of Scripture right so that we can in turn relay that to our audience. Regardless of the context, if you teach the Bible, have a desire to teach the Bible, or are simply interested in learning how to study Scripture better, this course is for you! See a description of the lessons, read testimonies of those who have taken the course, and register below.

"The main benefits afforded to me from the training were the different tools provided for digging deeper into my studies. Particularly, how to study passages in the correct context. In today’s religious (and political) climate, the distortion of the Word to fit into the pervasive culture and to further personal agendas necessitates teachers to be thoroughly grounded in the Scripture for proper discipleship. Sola Scriptura!" — Jim Doss (Teaches Senior Adults)
"The training was detailed, informative and very helpful. For instance, it suggested methods for me to consider looking at biblical passages holistically instead of considering short passages for study. Our class uses a curriculum that, while an excellent resource, tends to focus on short passages by taking them out of context. Following their example sometimes leads me away from the true context of the book/letter or the author’s original intent. Not considering the context of the passage as it relates to the message of the author’s intent narrows my focus and hinders my leading of our group. Using the training techniques have made my lesson plans more original, more thought provoking and more engaging for our group." — Steve Kleinpeter (Teaches Young Adults)
"I found the training very useful in helping me know and learn more about tools and strategies to study God’s word more effectively. I am not a biblical scholar, but I love the Lord and I desire to hide his Word in my heart. Thank you for this resource and for being willing to challenge us to study at s deeper level!" — Dana Morrison (Teaches 9th & 10th Grade Girls)
