Lowcountry Presbyterian Church is going back to the basics.

Beginning Oct. 8, the Bluffton church is holding an introduction Bible study, "Bible Basics," at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

"This is in response to a number of people wanting a more elementary class on the Bible," Joe Crowley said, an elder in the church who is leading the study. "Other classes are all generally fairly advanced. The idea is to give people a very comfortable introduction to the Bible."

The one-hour class will give an overview of its contents, principles and themes, as well as cover how to navigate the Bible with its various books, chapters and verses.

"Other classes (at the church) presuppose the person is relatively familiar with the Bible in general," Crowley said.

Segments from the History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries will be used to springboard conversation in a relaxed setting that is open to everyone, regardless of religious background.

"This is something that is casual," Crowley said. "It doesn't matter how much or little you know. It doesn't make a difference if you are a Presbyterian or not, or if you have any religious affiliation at all. It's open to everybody, and everyone is welcomed."
