Bible Study

1st CORINTHIANS and the PAULINE LETTERS
Wednesdays at 7pm – Starting September 11
‘The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grade and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist, which along with Christian virtue leads to a life of joy.”

Wednesday evenings at 7pm, September 11 through December 4 (no class November 27). 1st Corinthians will be followed by Romans in the winter. Cost for study materials is $25 and members of the same household can share materials. Scholarships are available. If you already have a workbook, just sign up and make that notation.

UPCOMING

ROMANS – THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION
Wednesdays at 7pm
Starting January 29, 2020 

An 8-session program that examines Paul’s letter to the Romans and provides historical context, highlighting the connections to Jesus and Christianity that Paul makes with the Old Testament. Provides an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand the overarching theme of Romans–salvation. Explores the ways in which Jesus is the fulfillment of Israel’s prophecies, which leads to the universal, “Catholic” family of God. Participants will learn Catholic teaching on salvation, how to explain salvation to non-Christians, what is required for salvation–faith or works, what Paul means by “works” not leading to salvation, how Christ’s death changed their relationship with God, the meaning of the difficult passages in Romans, and how they can enter more deeply into Christ.
