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: Summer bible book read - You Are Enough by Danielle Bean. Mornings 10:30-11:30 a.m. Join us for a book read starting 6/20, in the Hall in room 5 that will end 7/18: How many times have we read the stories of Eve, Rahab, Sarah, Delilah, and others? And yet this book is full of fresh insight for women looking to grow closer to God and more confident in their identity as his precious daughter. In her latest book, Danielle couples timeless biblical truths with her signature maternal wisdom that makes you say, "Yes! You GET me! Thank God."
