Ladies’ Bible Study Fellowship

BSF is a multi-generational and multi-cultural Bible study that has been faithfully teaching Bible study classes worldwide for over 50 years! No previous Bible knowledge is needed to attend, just a desire to learn more about God and His Word and how it applies to your life. This year we will study the book of John, one of the nine courses BSF offers. Classes meet on Thursday mornings from 9:00-11:00. For those with children, we also provide an outstanding children’s program where your child will be taught the same lesson you learn each week on an age appropriate level. This will be a great time for your child to interact with other children their age in a loving and nurturing environment while you meet new friends and study the Bible together.

For more information contact Paula Nichols in the church office at 864-699-4314 or by email at pnichols@fbs.org.
