Lumber, sawdust, and the Bible are the ingredients a small group of men from Daybreak Community Christian Reformed Church in Valparaiso , Ind. , use for their Bible study. They meet on Saturday mornings at a local lumber and hardware store.

“The idea is to get the church out the door and into the community,” says Gary De Vries. He started the group because he wanted a Bible study outside of the church building and thought a lot of men would share his interest in lumber and hardware.

The men’s small group also includes a “Show and Tell” time when they share projects or interesting tools.

De Vries’s wife, Dianne, has started a similar Bible study for women. They meet in a local Barnes and Noble bookstore.
