the mission of Adult Discipleship at Bidwell Presbyterian Church is to offer ways for God’s spirit to transform ordinary women and men into fully alive Christian disciples, centered on the scripture, who love God and others with all that they are.
We offer 5 terms of adult Christian education classes each year covering a variety of topics including Biblical studies, theology and Christian history, book studies, and practical Christian living.
These classes are designed to help move you along a directed pathway of spiritual growth. We try to offer a few of our CORE Classes each term, with additional weekend classes throughout the year so that you can easily complete all courses within 1 to 2 years.
Bidwell recognizes that living the truth of Scripture is key to spiritual growth. Classes offered include Old and New Testament surveys, studies of specific books of the Bible, and Discovering the Bible introduction courses. At least 1 Biblical Studies class is offered each term.
The Sunday Study
Weekly study and discussion group open to all ages and stages. We look at various books and themes from the Bible as a means of informing and enriching their Christian walk. This is a drop-in style class that meets every Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Christian History Tours
Bi-annual guided trips to places like the Holy Land to explore Christian history and visit ancient Biblical locations.
