Community Bible Study




The Bristol class has been an active part of Community Bible Study for over 35 years. Trends come and go, but the Word of God is perfect, unchanging, and always practical. Come and see for yourself what happens when 140+ women from numerous backgrounds set aside cultural and denominational distinctions to simply learn what the Bible is all about and share with each other the joy of living in the light of its truth. Every class member gets a course book with commentary and home study questions. Then on Thursdays, we participate in small group discussions and a large group teaching. There is a full children's program for infants up through high school to help young mothers and home schoolers join in, and the class does not meet when local schools are closed for holidays or bad weather. This year we are studying Genesis. The Thursday gathering is from 9:15 to 11:30 a.m., hosted by First Presbyterian Church at 701 Florida Avenue in Bristol, Tennessee, located adjacent to the State Street entrance to King College.

The church has two parking lots. Our friendly greeters will be at both entrances to help you find your way.

 Children & Youth Ministry

Through a variety of activities such as Bible teaching, Scripture memory work, craft, music, games and other activities, we seek to provide a nurturing environment where children can learn about Jesus' wonderful love for them. We also come alongside parents as they teach and train their children to live out God’s truths in their lives. We welcome your children to experience the love of Jesus through the loving servants in our CBS Children and Youth Ministry. The Preschool Curriculum for this year is "Trusting in God."


The Bristol class offers the following Children's classes for the 2019-2020 class year:


  • Baby CBS, ages 12 to 24 months, where children are loved and cared for.
  • The Preschool program was developed for younger children using songs, stories and crafts to teach the Bible.
  • Primary CBS for grades 1-3, and Junior CBS for grades 4-8, includes Bible Study with small group lesson discussions, teacher instruction, games and activities.
  • High School CBS, grades 9-12, use the same lesson book as the Adult class and joins them for the teaching time.
Newborns up to 12 months old stay with their mothers.

Occasionally some of our children's classes develop a waiting list. If that happens, we will post a notice here.
