We are so excited that you are joining us for our all-campus Bible study of the Sermon on the Mount! Students, staff, and faculty are joining together in small groups to read and study scripture together.

It's bigger than Calvin
This Bible study reaches beyond our campus. Through our partnership with the off-campus programs, the Sermon on the Mount study will extend around the world, including Peru, China, and Hungary. In addition, many churches in west Michigan and others across North America will also be studying the Sermon on the Mount this fall.
