Online Bible Study


Keep God’s Word a Lamp Unto Your Feet

Our Northern Illinois Online Bible Study travels on through the Bible. In April we will turn again to the New Testament, picking up one of the Yale Bible Study series eight week courses.

Each week we prepare ourselves by reading a portion of Scripture, then watching a 15 minute video and studying other print materials from Yale.  Then, on Mondays at 7:00 p.m., and for an hour or so, we gather to support each other in prayer, and then discussing these materials.  It bucks us up.  It helps us stand tall in our faith.  It gives us the wonderful strength of community.

Our company of Bible searchers now numbers lay people and pastors from all over Northern Illinois and even out-of-state.  And we have been blessed by top-notch scholars from Yale, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, and even Flinders University in Australia.
