The opportunity to attend your Bible study is very necessary for me. As you are aware, working in this setting of law-making is very fast paced and stressful for everyone. I always look forward to this one hour a week where I can join fellow believers and study the Word of God. It calms me

Former Nebraska State Senator, Legislative District 38

As a newly elected state senator, I was very pleased to learn that several senators in the Nebraska Legislature were committed Christians who believed that the Bible is the Word of God.

When we gather to study the Bible, it helps us to improve as Senators and be the best version of ourselves. In studying God’s Word, we are able to reflect on biblical lessons and apply them to our lives to ensure that we are making the best decisions for the people we serve rather than selfish

The Capitol Studies Bible study has helped me apply Godly principles to current Legislative issues.  The study time also helps Senators get to know each other and share our beliefs. Pastor Arin and AnnMarie Hess are faithful servants, always eager to encourage and pray for Senators and staff.

I am thankful for the opportunity to meet with Arin, Anne Marie, and a substantial group of senators every week to study God’s Word and pray. It is encouraging to know that others in public service are striving to seek the Lord’s guidance.

Mark Christensen

Former Nebraska State Senator, Legislative District 44

Capitol Studies is a vital support to legislators desiring to sustain the Founding Father's objective of an America able to exercise freedom of religion and to keep a focus on what is most important, the King of kings!
