Bible study shines light upon every one of God’s words and creates rich discussions about faith and how to apply it to our daily lives and is completely FREE!
Why study the Bible?
When we meditate on the Word of God, it brings us closer to God. To study scripture as a group leads to a greater understanding of God on a personal level. This process also helps us explore how the Bible applies to everyday life and explores the question, “What does Jesus want from us?”
When do we meet?
We gather Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m., typically in Faith Community Center Room 4. Check the TV monitors in the church for location. This Bible Study is NOT a consecutive series, so come when you can. The group gathers weekly September through December and February through May.
Fall 2016 sessions begin September 8. There will not be any session November 24, 2016 nor April 13 (Holy Thursday), 2017.
Sessions will resume February 2, 2017. Check the TV monitors in the church for location.
What’s the process?
The format is set up as Lectio Divina, meaning “Divine Reading,” where we focus upon God’s word and meditate on what caught our attention and why. Our facilitator leads small and large group discussions, where people feel open to share what God has put upon their hearts. Participation is encouraged but just listening is also acceptable. Our program is lectionary based, which means we study the Sunday readings for the upcoming Sunday. There are often slide shows and video clips incorporated into the sessions. Materials are provided. Bible study notes have been written by our former pastor, Fr. Mike Van Sloun, and a parishioner facilitates the sessions. Bring your Bible if you wish.
Who is this Bible Study for?
All are welcome! We are all called to know God better though his word. Everyone can benefit from this study, from young adults to seniors, from regular Bible readers to people who have never read the Bible. If you feel the hunger to know more about God and learn more about the Bible, this is the study for you!
