Ecclesiates 3:1 says, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:”
Sometimes, we need help to get through life’s difficult moments. Support Groups meet throughout the year and provide Biblical counsel on topics such as grieving the death of a loved one, strengthening a marriage, or working through the difficult emotions of divorce.
Want to dive deeper?
Has God placed on a calling on your heart to teach? Or perhaps to enter ministry? Or maybe you have a desire to learn as much as you can about God. The Central Bible Institute theology cohorts at Central Church are in-depth studies that encourage believers to study together in a small-group environment with a biblically qualified teacher.
This is our most advanced form of study at Central Church. Each week will involve 70-100 pages of reading and 5-8 hours of study.
