Bible study series

Compiled by Ed van Ouwerkerk. We have purchased licenses for use in small groups. The New International Version translation is used, unless indicated differently. We encourage to use the YouVersion Bible app.
When a group is established, we will meet online through Zoom. And the group will settle times and locations when in-person meetings are wanted.
We prefer to meet weekly on Wednesdays.
