Bible Studies and Classes:
At Arlington Woods, we have several groups that meet together on an ongoing basis for Bible teaching on a variety of topics. If you are interested in learning more about specific topics from a biblical perspective, or would enjoy a more in-depth approach to Bible study, then these are the groups for you!
You can also find below a listing of classes that are offered at Arlington Woods. Throughout the year we offer classes for new Christians or for people who are interested in learning more about the Christian faith. We also offer several classes throughout the year that focus on studying a particular book or series for a limited time. Other specialized classes are geared towards training volunteers, understanding your spiritual gifts, or learning more about our church and how to get involved. For classes that aren't currently running, please contact Paul Bloomfield, our small groups coordinator. if you would be interested in being a part of the next one, and he'll add you to the list! Please also note that during the summer, some of these studies take a break, so contacting Paul is the best way to stay informed which are currently running.
