The Bible Exploration for Lunch League is open to any Fermilab employee or user who would like to discover for themselves what the Bible has to say. The group provides a comfortable forum in which to question, probe and exchange ideas on the many areas where the Bible touches on life. The only thing one needs to believe is that the Bible is worth looking into. Participants bring a rich variety of cultural backgrounds and life experiences to the discussions.

The group meets on Tuesdays at noon for an hour, both online and in person.  Each meeting has a social time, prayer time, usually an instructive video based on the Bible, and discussion time.  For more information visit our website or contact
