Hayes Barton Baptist Church offers a variety of bible studies throughout the year, both focused, short-term bible studies as well as those which are consistent and ongoing. We believe that spiritual growth is fundamental to being an active Christian, and making use of the biblical learning and fellowship found in the group study of the Scriptures is a key part to developing your spirituality and growing your relationship with God.
We strive to provide something for everyone in a wide range of bible study options, creating specific programs based on gender, age, experience, teaching styles, areas of study, and much more. Below are listings and descriptions of a few of our recurring bible study options which are the perfect source for expanding your understanding of the Bible and growing spiritually as a result.
Sunday School: Bible Studies for All Ages
Every Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m., we hold multiple bible studies with a variety of teaching styles and study materials suitable for all ages and levels of experience. Sunday School has a long heritage in Baptist life as the primary Bible study program of the church. We encourage every member of our congregation to find a class with the focus and fellowship that suits them best to learn more about God’s love.
Abundant Living: 2015 Daily Devotional
As part of our emphasis on Living and Giving Abundantly, our members are reading through the book Abundant Living by E. Stanley Jones. (Click here to purchase from Amazon.com.)
