Classes & Bible Studies

Learn and grow together.

Dig deeper into God’s Word through a variety of classes and Bible studies hosted throughout the week. From casual discussions about the Sunday sermon, to in-depth, college-level theology courses, Chelten offers many great opportunities to connect with one another and grow in your knowledge of the Scriptures.

Sunday Classes

James: Being a Friend of God

This study focuses on the Letter of James, a five-chapter book that teaches Christians to grow in their loyalty to God in the midst of challenging temptations from the world. Join us as we work through what it means to be a friend of God and not, as James writes, a friend of the world.

Whether you just began to study the Bible or have studied it your whole life, this group will be a good fit for you.

THURSDAY MORNINGS

6:30-7:30 am • Coffee Loft (near Fellowship Hall)
When it comes to living the Christ-centered manhood you were designed for, who you “do life with” is important. Chelten Men’s Fraternity invites you to our weekly Thursday morning men’s fellowship group in the Loft from 6:30-7:30 a.m. (Coffee and donuts at 6:15). Start the year off right for an hour of connection, sharing, engagement and prayer. We’ll use the excellent book Disciplines of a Godly Man by Kent Hughes to equip ourselves and facilitate small group discussions about the challenges we face as men of God. Prayerfully consider joining us! If you have questions, contact Dan King at [email protected].
