Morning Bible Study

Fulfilled

Wednesdays (9:15-10:45am in the Parish Hall)

Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? In the Old Testament, God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith. That plan was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament.

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament Tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. While it is designed as a faith-sharing Scripture study, you will also gain an understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of Scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic Faith with the Word of God.

Part One focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism, and more. Part Two (Coming Soon in 2018) focuses on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more.

Evening Bible Study

Beginning Wednesday, September 14, from 7:30-9 p.m. in Meeting Room B.

by Jeff Cavins and Thomas Smith

Paul’s letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it. Ephesians:Discover Your Inheritance is an 8-part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out.

 

 

 

Welcome! We would love to have you join us on Wednesdays as we open the Word of God and encounter Jesus through each other, small groups, and study of The Bible and the Sacrametnts.

Applying the Scriptures to our everyday life can be a daunting task, but it is much easier when you aren't doing it alone.  At bible study, you will have the opportunity to build lasting friendships in Christ through praying and sharing the Word of God together.  We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

SMALL GROUPS

In addition to our weekly meetings, we have a vibrant community of small in-home-groups that meet throughout the year.  These small groups grow together in Catholic Christian Community with a special focus on varying devotions.
