Discipleship Groups

Connect to others in a discipleship group through Bible study, sharing, accountibility and prayer! Discipleship groups are a great way to live in community and on mission!

Collegetown Bible Fellowship

Fridays, 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm, St. Luke's Lutheran Church Basement (109 Oak Ave.)

Collegetown Bible Fellowship (CTBF) is a bilingual (English/Mandarin) mult-ethnic, inter-generational Christian fellowship. We are a diverse group of college students, visiting scholars, professors and other local residents. This is a great way to invite friends and connect with others over food, music, prayer and Bible study!
On a typical Friday, the English and Mandarin groups meet together for dinner and singing, and then we divide up into separate English and Mandarin groups to study the Bible. Currently we are studying the book of Philippians.
