An easy-English Bible discussion, open to anyone who is interested in learning English and exploring the Bible.
Our Christianity Explored class is a safe, no-pressure opportunity for you to learn more about the Bible and Jesus. Our class is designed for people who are not Christians, so we encourage you to learn and ask as many questions as you wish! This is why we called the class Christianity Explored--we want to give you the opportunity to explore Christianity in a safe and fun place.
We begin each class with a FREE dinner. We also have a special class for kids.
Free Registration is Below!

More Information about Our Classes
We alternate each semester with one of the classes below. Each class is organized with international students and scholars in mind, which means we try to slow down our presentations or use subtitles so that those using English as a second language can follow our discussions.
1. Christianity Explored (CE) is the starting point for many to investigate Christianity in an informal, small group setting. Using the Book of Mark, we will look at the life of Jesus--his miracles, his teachings, his death, his resurrection. Everyone is welcome, especially the inquisitive or the convinced skeptic. Questions are encouraged; you can ask as many questions as you want, at any time during the course.
2. Bible Explored. This series explores themes and major Bible stories in the Old and New Testaments. Most of our studies cover stories from the Old Testament to discover how they set the context for Jesus's life and ministry.
This class is designed for those who are not Christians. We use Bibles in English and other languages (you are welcome to take one for free if you don't own your own). All are welcome to attend. There is no cost for the meal or class materials. Invite a friend and plan on joining us for ten weeks of Bible study and encouraging conversations.
