Bible Studies / Small Groups

Wednesday Bible Study

Wednesday Adult Bible Study meets Wednesdays from 9:30-11:00am in St. Michael Hall. If you want to continue to grow in the Faith, please consider joining us as we draw nearer to our Lord and Savior through the study of His Word. This group is a wonderful means of being part of a smaller community in the midst of our vibrant St. Mary Help of Christians parish.

Current Study: We are reading and discussing the Song of Songs and should finish this study just before Thanksgiving.

Upcoming Study: Our next study will begin in December and is Jesus, The Way, The Truth and The Life, a DVD presentation featuring Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins and Edward Sri. The videos were filmed in the Holy Land and lend beauty and a depth to the study of the public ministry of Jesus. Each week will begin with discussion questions and then a video.

To obtain the most benefit from this study the purchase of a study set from Ascension Press is suggested, but it is not essential. The study set contains a workbook, text, timeline chart and one year online access to the video presentations.

The study set is $29.95 and can be purchased HERE.
