One Faith. One People. One Study.

There are over 15 Bible Studies that meet each Sunday morning (9:45-10:45) in both the newer Ogletown Exchange (E) and the older Main Building (M).. Some are larger (30+ people), while others provide more personal interaction (less than 5). These Sunday Bible Studies offer a diversity of Bible study topics and methods, year-round.

We want Sunday Bible Studies to provide. . .

Welcome. Many find that Sunday Bible Studies are an easy-to-find on-ramp to meet others and begin exploring church life at OBC.
Care. Each SBS creates a circle of help for people, as study teachers and members help each other as needs arise.
Study. The heart of SBS is the search to understand God’s Word more fully, often learning and applying Scripture in ways impossible to do in larger worship services.

Visit as many classes as you’d like. It may take several attempts over several months to find the class that fits you best.
