New Scripture Studies Starting This Month
We have three new scripture studies starting this month. All are welcome!
Scripture Study: Paul’s Letters from Prison
Join us as we study “Paul’s Letters from Prison” on Monday evenings, 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall Library. This 10 week study begins on Monday, April 11th. It covers Philippians, Colossians, and Ephesians.
In these letters of encouragement, correction and instruction written from prison, Paul lovingly inspires and challenges us to greater discipleship. In Philippians, Paul calls on the community to rejoice even when difficulties and struggles abound in life. Colossians and Ephesians have a number of striking similarities, including the depiction of the Church as the body of Christ with Christ as the head. Colossians, however, contains a great hymn of praise to Christ as the image of the invisible God, while Ephesians describes the Church as the spotless bride of Christ.
All are welcome wherever you are in your faith journey and you can join this study at any time. There is a $15 charge for materials. Please contact Steve Baroni at at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or if you have any questions.
Scripture Study: Untold Blessings
Holy Spirit Scripture Study will begin a new seven week study, “Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness”, starting Wednesday, April 13th. Join us each week in the Parish Hall Library after daily Mass, 9:15 to 11:00 a.m.
God calls each of us to become a saint, and he is ready to support us along the way by providing abundant blessings. We will seek these blessings by examining and reflecting on the Three Paths to Holiness. The first path is “Finding the Center in Christ”, the second is “Knowing You Are a Sinner”, and the third is “Realizing Your Life is Not About You”.
Each week there are 4-5 questions for understanding as well as questions for reflection which help you to reflect on how this is relevant to your own life and experiences. All are welcome no matter where you are in your faith journey or scripture study experience.
The cost of the Study Guide is $18. Please contact Mary Kane at email@example.com to sign up (so that we can order enough books) or to find out more information.
Scripture Study: Life Eternal
Join us for the Little Rock Scripture study, “Life Eternal.” The biblical promise of eternal life appears late in Scripture, but it blossoms into fullness with the resurrection of Christ. Explore the growing nature of the hope of those who have called upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the past, and the crystallization of our hope for eternal life in the victory of Christ over death. Those with some familiarity with Scripture will find it both inspiring and informative as the hope of eternal life develops and crystallizes through the sweep of salvation history.
The group will meet Thursday mornings from 8:15 to 10:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall Library, beginning April 21st, and run through June 9th (with no meeting on June 2nd). There is a $15 charge for materials. For questions or to register, contact Elisa Baroni at at firstname.lastname@example.org.
