Saint Jude's Bible Studies promote an appreciation of reading the Bible and understanding how Bible readings can be applied to our daily life. Everyone is welcome, wherever you are on your spiritual journey. Bible Study classes have no prerequisites. The Bible has been a powerful influence in the lives of countless people. Every Bible Story is a metaphor for the experiences of God we have all had and will have in our lives. St Jude’s offers four adult Bible Study classes. Details of our Bible Study classes are presented in the church bulletin. A short description of each class presented below:
Thursday Morning Bible Study: Mornings 9:30 -11:30 a.m. The Bible and the Sacraments looks at the basic teaching of the Church as to the meaning and origin of the Sacraments. But it goes further. It investigates the deeper mystery of the sacraments as illuminated by Sacred Scripture. Examining the rich relationship between the Old and New Testaments, it reveals the sacraments as more than mere earthly rituals. They are incredible “‘powers that come forth’ from the Body of Christ” (CCC 1116). For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thursday Evening Bible Study: Thursday Evening Bible Study will begin a short study entitled Psalms II on April 25. This is an excellent way to continue your spiritual growth after Easter. The Book of Psalms is a unique selection of song-prayers. To study them is to study prayer and ultimately enter into prayer. They teach us be thankful and wise. The study guide is excellent! We will sample a variety of psalms, not all 150. The cost for this study is $20.00 for the "Psalms for All Seasons" text and study guide. All are welcome whether this is your first time to attend a Bible Study or you have participated in many sessions. The study begins on Thursday, April 25th, in the Hall in room 5 at 7PM. This 7 week series will end on Thursday, June 6th. Contact Tim & Mariann Harmon with any questions; email@example.com.
