As we feed the hungry, we serve Christ.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. Matthew 25:35

 

Language Ministries

In the Idioms Class, we discuss some of the odd American phrases that don't really translate well. ("Get a move on!" "Rubbing salt in the wound," and "Scared stiff.") We also have a group meeting to study English as a Second Language, discussing some of the very basic words or thoughts that one might hear in normal daily activities.

And, if there is an interest, we will have a simple Conversations Class where you can talk and listen… as we also talk and listen… hopefully helping you to be more at ease in your conversations in English.

An important part of our meetings is just getting acquainted with each other and our different cultures, and building relationships. Weekly sessions begin September 14th at 7 pm and run through the Spring, with a break over the holiday season. Other opportunities are also available.

Bible Study Fellowship


BSF is an in-depth, interdenominational Bible study that helps people know God and equips them to effectively serve the Church throughout the world.

In more than 1,000 classes in 39 countries, people of all ages, races and cultures participate in BSF, whether they are discovering God's Word for the first time or have studied the Bible over a lifetime.

BSF Women meet at Woodland at 6:45pm on Mondays.

Community Bible Study

Come see what happens in people’s lives when they discover God through the study of His Word, the Bible. Our classes meet weekly during the school year. Each class member receives a course book with a commentary and home study questions. Each week, you’ll participate in small group discussions and a large group teaching. From time to time, fellowship meals will provide special times of sharing and relationship building within the class.

Team Sports

 

Playing sports should be fun for kids, and the Christian Center helps make that happen.  They emphasize character and integrity, and kids learn about prayer and discipleship as well as the game.  Sports include basketball, soccer, and baseball for kids K through 12th grade.

Contact the Christian Center by phone at (309) 685-4218 for more information.
