Bible Study Groups
OPPC has Four wonderful Bible Study groups.
Please contact the office for more information.
Golden Rule Men's Bible Study
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30 a.m. 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.
WEEKLY TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY

Wednesday Night Bible Study
wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the OPPC Library (beginning Sept. 25)
The Church’s Songbook
Paul encouraged the church at Ephesus to “speak to each other with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs”. Since the very beginning, Christians have encountered God in their hymnals. Perhaps this is because the very best of the Church’s music is based on Scripture. Join us this year as we take a tour of the Church’s songbook - ancient, traditional and modern - and take a deep dive into the Biblical background of each song.
Women's Fellowship and Bible Study
*3rd Wednesday, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 P.m. in the OPPC Library
*Bible study begins September 25th (the 4th Wednesday of the month in September only)
Love carved in stone (A fresh look at the 10 commandments)
The study explores what it would mean to consider the Ten Commandments not as a hard list of what not to do but, instead, as a
“love letter” from a loving God. The author, in discussion of each of the nine lessons uses the “words”, instead of “commandments”, which is not used in Scripture. Each lesson begins with an explanation of one of the Ten Words in its biblical context. From there we consider a moment from Jesus’ life that shows us how he lived out that Word. We then consider the Word for our own lives and contexts.
All women are invited to join for study, fellowship and light refreshments.
All women are welcome and invited to attend this interactive Bible study for friendship, sociability and in the words of its author,” an awakening of one’s spiritual sense.” Study books will be available.
