Adult Christian Education

At Hope Presbyterian Church we encourage everyone to do more than attend worship on Sunday. We call it Worship+2. Come to worship, then also grow your faith at a class or volunteer in some way. Together, an active, engaged church can do so much good! So pick a class that fits your schedule and interests. If none fit, try the Old Testament Reading Plan on your own time.

Currently, all Christian Education Classes are held virtually.

Bible Study at Home

Several websites offer free tools for engaging with Scripture at whatever depth you feel comfortable:

Bible Gateway (

At Bible Gateway, you can look at 59 different English translations of any passage of Scripture. A great variety of study tools are also available through Bible Gateway, although some cost money to access.

Blue Letter Bible (

While it doesn’t have the sheer number of translations that Bible Gateway has, Blue Letter Bible has some of the most accessible tools out there. Want to investigate a word in the original Hebrew or Greek? Blue Letter Bible has everything you need.

Bible Hub (

This all-purpose Bible site takes the tools of Blue Letter Bible and turns them up to 11. Nearly any word study a Bible reader would wish to do can be done through Bible Hub.

The Bible Project (

Not every Bible video is made equally. The Bible Project has a well-made video for every book of the Bible, along with several videos exploring themes in Scripture.

Overview Bible (

Similar in style to The Bible Project, the Overview Bible does just that: offers an overview of the Bible. You can zoom out to the entire Bible, or zoom in to a specific book, and Overview Bible has resources for you.
