Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study (continuing)

 "Seeds of the Word:  Finding God in the Culture" - a Bishop Barron Book

Fridays, 7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m., FLC Join us at anytime. 

Since the first century, Christians have detected "seeds of the Word" in the surrounding culture. No matter how charred or distorted the fragments, we can always uncover inklings of the Gospel, which can then lead people to God. Through this evocative collection of essays, Bishop Robert Barron finds those "seeds" in today's most popular films, books, and current events. How do Superman, Gran Torino, and The Hobbit illuminate the figure of Jesus? How does Bob Dylan convey the prophetic overtones of Jeremiah and Isaiah? Where can we detect the ripple of original sin in politics, sports, and the Internet culture? Finding the "seeds of the Word" requires a new vision. This book will train you to see.

Thursday, July 12: 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
A Pathway to God: Prayer and Spirituality
with Bev Sauer

 Monday, July 16: 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Ages and Stages: Faith and Moral Development
with Joyce Guris

The stages of faith are like rings of a tree.  Just like a tree adds one ring on top of another, we do not leave the needs of the earlier stages behind after we expand into the next stage.  We continue to need the faith experiences of the earlier stages throughout our lives.

Thursday, July 26: 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
God Promised/God Revealed: Scripture and Divine Revelation
with Jean Sherwood

God reveals Himself to us through both Holy Scripture and Tradition handed down to us from apostolic times.  Divine Revelation was completed at the death of the last apostles, and since then no new revelation has been made.  How does the Church use these tools to decide on points of faith?

Thursday, August 23: 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Church History & Development
with Tom Welch

Learn the role of the Church and how it developed from the times of the apostles to modern day.

Ongoing Study & Fellowship Groups

Senior Summer Bible Study: "Bible Study in Plain English"

with Marjie Schutz
Tuesdays, 3:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room
Join us at anytime.

Are you 50 or older? Join our "motley" group of seniors for fellowship and study of our Catholic faith. We’ll start with the Bible Study in Plain English--The NEW Testament - a perfect study for beginners yet a refreshing overview for those who are comfortable with the Bible!  We will meet Tuesdays, May 22 through August 21, except for July 3rd from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Adult Ed Room. 

We open our meetings with a discussion on Fr. Fernando's Sunday reflection.  Then we delve into the "meat and potatoes" of our study.  We never know what side topics on our Catholic faith and teachings will surface.  We guarantee you that our discussion is lively, varied and interesting.  This summer we will overview the New Testament using "The Bible in Plain English".  The study material is provided.  

The following is the tentative schedule of when and what topics will be covered at each summer session:

  • 7/10 -- Gospel of John
  • 7/17 & 7/24 -- Death and Resurrection (all 4 Gospels)
  • 7/31 & 8/7 -- Early Christian Writings (Acts & early Paul)
  • 8/14 & 8/21 -- Letters & Visions (various letters and Revelations)

 You will not be expected to read the New Testament in its entirety.  The study guide suggested specific passages on specific themes in the various books to give you a flavor of the book and its message.  

Interested and/or have questions?  Contact Marjie Schutz.

 Thursday Evening Men’s Bible Study

Scripture Study

Join us at anytime.

June & July will center on grace, prayer, faith, peace, love and joy as life giving gifts given to us from our Father.  We will study and explore the power in the 'word' that builds us up through these gifts.  We will read and apply the Scriptures that express these gifts our Father has given us.  Hopefully enabling us to gain strength through these gifts to build his body, the Church.  In August we will study John 15, "I am the vine, my Father is the vinedresser."  One heart, one mind, one body.

Interested? Contact Joe Floccari.
