Bible Study Groups
OPPC has three wonderful Bible Study groups.
Please contact the office for more information.
WEEKLY TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
Tuesdays at1:00 p.m. in the oppc library (beginning May 16)
The Weekly Bible Study will resume on Tuesday, May 16 at 1:00 p.m. in the Library! We’ll be studying the Gospel of Mark using Mark: Discover Jesus (18 Bible Study Discussion) by Q Place. Copies of the study will be made available in the office for $12. Please join us for a fun, interactive way to grow deeper as you follow Jesus.
Tuesday Night Bible Study
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30 pm in the OPPC Library (Beginning Sept. 27)
As Protestants, and children of the Reformation, Presbyterians have always relied on the Bible rather than Church tradition as their chief source of authority about God, humanity and the world. However, none of the Reformers ever saw themselves as starting from scratch. The topics and conclusions of their theology, the form and the substance of their worship, all came from their intensive study of the great saints and the Church which produced them.
As our world becomes ever more complex, with deep theological wounds finding unexpected healing, and old alliances fraying in the face of new controversies, we need more than ever to ask the ancient and eternally relevant questions: Where did we come from? How did we get here? What can we learn about where we’re going from the towering achievements and tragic mistakes of our past?
Taught by Ken Smith, a friend of our church and theologically trained, the Adult Bible Study meets on Tuesday nights in the OPPC library, starting September 27th. We hope you’ll join us this fall to learn about the great debates and prayers, the saints and the sinners, of the unexpectedly holy catholic Church.
Women's Fellowship and Bible Study ~ come to the waters!
3rd Wednesday, 10:00 - 11:00 am in the OPPC Library
WHO IS JESUS? WHAT A DIFFERENCE A LENS MAKES is the title of the 2016-2017 Presbyterian Women’s Bible study. Beginning on Wednesday, September 21st (regularly meeting on the third Wednesday of the month), the women of the morning circle will gather at 10:00 a.m. to begin a fascinating study answering the important question as originally asked by Jesus of the apostles, “Yes, but who do you say that I am?” We will study the varying perspectives of the Gospel writers as well as that of Paul, and learn how Jesus is viewed from the Jewish and Muslim faith traditions.
This should prove to be an intellectually stimulating time of study to which all the women of the church are invited to join for fellowship, friendship and knowledge. Come join us.

Golden Rule Men's Bible Study
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30 am in the OPPC Library
Our Bible Study meets the first three Tuesday mornings each month at 7 a.m. in the library. Each session is started by the taking of prayer requests by our leader for that day. This gives each of us the opportunity to share the concerns in our lives as well as those in need of support in our church family. The leader then introduces the DVD or CD presentation for the day – usually a 30 minute lecture from the Learning Company:a spirited discussion follows. These discussions sometimes range beyond the topic of the lecture, with humorous insight always appreciated.
The leader for the day brings the doughnuts: fresh coffee is ready when we arrive. The leader for the day rotates; at present, with 14 members, this privilege comes up about every 4 months. The fourth Tuesday finds us enjoying fellowship and a hearty breakfast at Denny’s in Redmond.
Please come join us as we seek to learn more about the foundations of our faith. As with so many activities at OPPC, we feel the bonding love of Christ in our fellowship.
