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:Thursday Morning Bible Study begins on October 3 at 9:30 a.m. with one of the most popular studies of Ascension Press. The Bible Timeline study program takes you on a guided journey through salvation history. Through video presentions, presenter Jeff Cavins will show you how fourteen of the Bible’s narrative books tell the biblical story from beginning to end and give you the keys to understanding the amazing story woven throughout Scripture. You will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and discover how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith.
