A program of Bible study for adults over 16 is given periodically (typically three courses) during the year, usually held in the Meeting Room on Wednesdays at 6 or 6:30 p.m. for one-and-a-half hours. Selected books from the Bible are discussed in blocks of approximately 10 weeks. Lessons, based on the Little Rock Scripture Study series, will cover both the Old and New Testaments with an emphasis on deepening our understanding of the Word of God, enriching prayer life and expanding our participation as members of the Mystical Body of Christ. Each lesson will include prayer, personal study and weekly small group sharing. Watch the bulletin for dates and other specifics of each study series. If you are interested in learning more about the Bible, you are welcome.
