Bible Studies

FAQs
Why should I join a Bible Study group?

Hosanna!'s goal is for all members to be fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ.  A disciple is a student of Jesus, one who seeks to develop a closer relationship with God.  The process of discipleship involves many things including prayer, study of God's Word, fellowship with other believers, meditation, and more.  Through Bible Studies we encourage and guide the development of disciples.  The Adult Discipleship team is committed to walking with you on the journey to a closer relationship with God.  We are ALL students and we look forward to learning with you!

How do I get started? (3 options)
