Bible Study Fellowship


The mission of Shiloh is to make more and better disciples for Jesus Christ in our community and throughout the world. One of the ways we follow this call is through our Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) classes. The classes are designed to help members grow in their knowledge of Him.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,  2 Peter 3:18.

Along with growing spiritually, Bible Study Fellowship is also a place where the large church becomes small. Relationships are formed in these smaller settings as members grow biblically together. Bible Study Fellowship is also where we get mission minded. How profitable is it to have members who can win a game of bible trivia, but do not act much like Jesus Christ by showing His love to others? We encourage BSF classes to engage in practical acts of service. Yes, it’s a fact that our help comes from the Lord, however many times the helping hands are also yours and mine.  We look forward to seeing you in one of our many BSF classes.

“We are a BSF class for women ages 30 to 44.  We are seasoned women of God, seasoning each other from the Word of God. We take the principles learned from our Bible study lessons and apply them to our lives and daily Christian walk.  From God and these learned principles, we are becoming salt and light to a bland and dark world by practicing the Great Commission of going out and making disciples of all the nations through the help of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit”.

College Age (Coed/18-24) – Rm 301
Our College-Age Bible Study Fellowship class is designed to speak into the lives of young people who are beginning to step out into the world that is “no friend of grace.”  Our goal helps build and strengthen the faith and fiber of young Christian men and women, which will equip them to stand up for God in whatever environment they find themselves and to glorify Him in every aspect of their lives.  We look forward to you joining us each week, as we take this journey of faith together.
