Manna is a Life-Group of Valley Baptist Church that features in-depth expository teaching in a lecture format.  Quarterly study booklets are provided so members may study ahead.  It is a large class, yet includes prayer time and snacks each Sunday.  Since Manna believes in doing life together, there are fellowships throughout the year that develop deeper friendships.  The class also produces the lessons as podcasts under Manna at Valley Baptist Church – available on most of the podcast applications.  This makes it easy to review a lesson, or catch one you missed.  Manna may be a large class, but it’s a friendly class.

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” 

Hebrews 4:12
