Adult Ministries

At Manito Presbyterian Church, we strive to offer a variety of ways to engage the Bible as individuals and as a community.  

"The Scriptures Jesus Knew" Old Testament Study

The Old Testament is complex, with thousands of years of history and numerous cultures. Don't let this daunt you. It is worth working through, and it is the scripture Jesus read and understood. The class meets Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00 pm starting in October.

Scott Starbuck has taught the Old Testament using many texts, and he thinks Michael Coogan's book, A Study on the Old Testament is a great next step after hearing the depth of questions coming from the recent Isaiah class.  Contact the church office ( for more information.

Digging Deeper for Parents

Are you hungry to connect yourself and your children to a vibrant, biblical faith? Following the children’s scriptures, this class will help empower parents for great conversations at home. It meets at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings.

Pohl.

Women's Bible Study

Using the Horizons curriculum, this year's study entitled "Come to the Waters" explores the rich imagery and stories of some of the Bible's 800 references to water. Led by Chris Murphy, this group meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 1:30 in the Gathering Place.

Moms’ Group

Meeting each Thursday morning, mothers of young children gather to discuss issues pertaining to parenthood, Biblical principals, and fellowship. Childcare is provided and is lead by Rev. Pamela Starbuck.
