Bible Study

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:8)

Myrtle Baptist Church Bible Study offers a place to connect with other believers in fellowship; to grow in our understanding of the Bible, as Jesus’ own small group of disciples did; to meet the needs of others in your group in ministry; to become equipped for evangelism; and to worship God through practicing godly behavior. Bible Study meets every Wednesday night at 7:30pm.
