Word Study Tools

This Sunday (October 7), the FPC Library will be displaying our Bible word study tools. In his sermon on Sunday, Pastor Eric will show us how he uses word study tools while engaging with the Bible. After the service, you can stop by and pick up some tools to use for yourself!
 
You can find our word study tools listed in our online catalog here. We have wide range of resources including concordances, dictionaries, and interlinear Bibles. Of specific interest relating to our current sermon series on Philippians would be our Greek-English dictionaries and interlinear Bible. A great online word study resource is the Blue Letter Bible, which you can find here.
