Immediately before our risen Lord's ascension into heaven, he instructed His disciples: "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit" (Matt. 28:19). That Jesus would give this final instruction to His followers shows the importance of these words; but in order to proclaim the "good news" (i.e., gospel) and make disciples of others, we must first become disciples ourselves. This is done, in part, by understanding God's revelation to us. We take this mission seriously and invite anyone interested to join our regular Bible study classes. Participants are given informational handouts and questionnaires ahead of time to consider as they read through the assigned text for the week. Class discussions are highly interactive, offering people an opportunity to read the Bible in a contextually appropriate way, ask questions, and apply what they are learning to their lives.
This semester we are studying the Gospel of Saint John. Meetings are held each Thursday* at two different times: daytime (11:30-1:00) and evening (6:45-8:15). An optional 15-minutes of fellowship is offered prior to each class, with coffee and snacks available to all.
Bible study groups are co-led by Fr. James Honeycutt and Mrs. Helene Lionas.
*Classes do not meet during the Thanksgiving (Nov. 22) and Christmas seasons (Dec. 20, 27, and Jan. 3).
