Grow in Knowledge and Understanding

As we follow Jesus, it is important for us to GROW in our knowledge and understanding of who God is and what God is calling us to do. Kingswood offers various kinds of Bible and book studies for adults as a way to GROW in faith. They are not only a wonderful way of learning more about our faith, but also a way of connecting together in sacred community as we build deeper relationships with one another and God.  We offer short-term and long-term Bible study classes and we often do studies of particular books that focus on the Bible, issues of faith, and topics for serving others and making change. Some favorite authors of books studies are Adam Hamilton, Barbara Brown-Taylor, Susan Robb, and Matt Miofsky. Consider joining a study group and GROW in your walk with Jesus.

Women's Online Book Study

All women are invited to participate in a weekly online book study beginning Tuesday, September 12.

There’s never an expectation to complete a reading to join in the discussion and all viewpoints are welcome. If you are interested in joining this group at 5 pm on Tuesdays, email Kary for the ZOOM link at
