Help with Life’s Difficulties
Free Biblical counseling services are offered by our pastors and certified Biblical counselors in our body. If you are in need of counseling and attend Countryside, please contact the church office.
deepen Your Understanding of the Bible
In a day when truth is seemingly up for grabs, it is essential that God’s people know His word and understand its significance for all of life. We encourage everyone to come and be a part of our Bible Institute as we cover subjects like Christian Worldview, Theology, Bible Interpretation, and Biblical Counseling. Whether you are a parent, student, teacher, or employee, these classes serve to equip you to handle life and interact with the world in a biblically informed way.
Classes are held on Mondays from 6:30pm-8:00pm in The Commons. We will be studying key principles for interpreting and applying various genres of Scripture including narrative, poetry, prophecy, etc. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Otto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
