Adult Ministries

Adult Ministries strive to provide opportunities for each adult at Devonshire to become more like Jesus. Our primary areas of ministry are focused on biblical instruction (Sunday school) and spiritual growth through community (Small Groups).

We also schedule seasonal opportunities for adults, including specific Bible studies for women and men, and the Men’s Softball Team.

Small Groups

Small Groups are a laboratory for spiritual growth, where you dig deeper and participate in conversation. Groups meet weekly throughout the year, in homes all over the Harrisburg area.

Bible Course – Understanding the Scriptures

This course provides a general introduction to the story and significance of the Bible, the foundational book of the Christian faith and one of the world’s greatest works of literature.  Students will examine the Bible’s nature, purpose, and authority; its historical narrative, cultural background, literary structure, and main theological concepts. Major emphasis is placed on understanding the overall storyline of the Bible as one grand narrative of redemption. It is intended as a foundation level course, suitable for those who have no previous knowledge of the Bible or Christian thought.
