Bible Study Tech is an Inter-Denominational Women’s Bible Study in Fairfield Glade, which offers all women a chance to study the Bible in-depth.

Class members need no pre-requisite instruction to join, only an interest in Bible Study.  Beginner Bible students and Bible Study experts will be comfortable in the informal and friendly learning atmosphere.

You are welcome to join them on Mondays from Jan. 14 thru Feb. 25, at  1:30 P.M. to 4 P.M., at Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church, Fellowship Hall.

Cost of the class is $20 for the workbook.  Pre-registration is suggested by Jan. 3.  This pre-registration helps us have enough workbooks.
