Congregational Church to hold Bible study

For those not well versed in the Bible,  the First Congregational Church of Greenwich will provide a new weekday Bible Study for people who would like to understand the Bible but have little or no background in it.

Many people are interested in history, literature and other disciplines, but when it comes to the Bible they are unsure of where to start. An educational opportunity awaits, starting today, March 21 from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. and continuing every other Thursday morning for six weeks.

The program will be taught by First Congregational Church’s Rev. Dan England. Rev. England has been teaching two other Bible Studies in Greenwich and Westport for the past several years, each of which draws close to 100 attendees weekly. Rev. England combines knowledge, humor and an entertaining teaching style that has kept people returning week after week.

While this Bible Study is open to all, it might be of particular interest to stay-at-home moms and dads, seniors and work-at-home employees who can’t find the time or energy to come on a Sunday, but might be able to fit in an hour on Thursdays twice a month. Rev. England has made it clear that the class is not a devotional session where participants will be asked to share views on Bible verses. Instead, the class will begin with the book of Mark and learn who the author is, why he wrote it, when he wrote it and what it means.

The Bible Study is also not an attempt to create a bigger congregation. If you attend another church or don’t regularly go to church anywhere, it is not a problem — all are welcome. Additionally, no previous knowledge of the Bible is expected of attendees.

Those with questions may contact Rev. Dan England directly at 203-543-0363 or [email protected]
