A Quick Journey through the Bible
St Augustine said, “to fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; to seek Him, the greatest adventure…” This program offers a way to seek God by learning His history of love i.e., the narrative thread that is found in Scripture and by discovering where your life fits into the Story.
Whether you are new to Scripture study or have been reading it all your life, this program can start you off on a lifelong adventure of getting to know God in His written word.

Images of Christ in the Old Testament

Becoming a Praying Person
If you want to become a praying person, the natural place to begin is the Bible. Because the Holy Spirit guided the authors of Scripture, the book they wrote is an always-fresh source of wisdom on everything concerning God and our relationship with him.
In this study we will read about six men and women in Scripture to learn from them about being a person of prayer. As we proceed, we will explore connections between what we find in Scripture and in our own life. The goal is to grow in a prayerful relationship with God, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit.
March 8 (Lent)
