Bible Study

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: Thursdays at 9:30am in the hall. Thursday Morning Bible Study begins a new study on Thursday April 20th.  THE SPIRITUALITY OF PAUL by Little Rock explores key Bible passages from the early church's most influential evangelist.  Discover the rich Spiritual tradition of Paul that continues to enrich believers today.  This study draws us to the power of Jesus' cross and resurrection, not only in our lives, but in the lives of key historical figures who embody Paul's Spirituality.  One of the gifts of this study is learning more about God's transforming grace. Come and enjoy the fellowship of wonderful men and women of your parish!!  Questions, call Judy 805-495-1623 or email jasismimi@gmail.com

Thursday Evening Bible Study: Thursday Evenings at 7pm in the hall in room 5.  We begin a short, 5 week study, entitled "Panorama of the New Testament” on April 20th. With this panoramic view of the New Testament we are better able to understand that this is our story. This study surveys the books found in the New Testament and familiar stories will be placed in context, and God's overall plan of salvation will come into focus.  This study is a perfect way to begin a Bible Study program after Easter. All are welcome to join the Thursday Evening Bible Study. For more information call Tim or Mariann Harmon, 805-495-1732.
