Due to Covid-19, we are going to be doing things differently this year for our Adult Bible Studies. Until it is safe to meet in person, we will be having our bible study for this Fall online. I know some of this is going to be very different from how we normally do things, I just ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this together.
How this is going to work is that if you are wanting to take the bible studies being offered this Fall, (I am only doing two for now, one in the morning and one in the evening, to see how this is going to work and see what kind of response I get) you will need to e-mail or call Meggin Sanner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-571-8402.
I will need the following information from you- Your full name, your phone number, e-mail address and your home address. The reason I will need your home address is so that I can mail or drop off your workbook for the bible study. Payments can be mailed to the Church or dropped off in the drop box outside the church office with a note saying that the money is for the Adult Bible Study and which one(s) you are taking.
We will then have a regularly scheduled weekly meeting to discuss the video and questions in the workbook just like always, the only difference will be that we will meet online using Zoom. Every week you will be sent the new link to click on to get into the meeting at the appointed time. After our discussions, we will then say goodbye and everyone can then go and watch the next video online on their own, just like we would normally do. If you have a Zoom account or other online video service and want to lead a small group for one of these studies or lead a group for a different bible study, please let me know.
**The FOUR bible Studies we are offering are: Tuesday Morning at 9AM, starting Sept. 22nd, 2020– “Follow Me” is on the Gospel of John. It is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ. As the Good Shepherd, Jesus seeks after us. He comes to meet us and beckons us to follow him. He calls us to be his disciples, to trust him, to open ourselves to his merciful love, and to love others as he has loved us. Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. (Many of you signed up to take this in the Spring, but it got cancelled due to Covid, so we are trying again). Cost- $25
**Wednesday Evening at 6:30PM, starting Sept. 23rd, 2020– “Jesus: The Way, the Truth and the Life”, a new study by Dr. Edward Sri, Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio and Jeff Cavins. Anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’ life—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today. Cost- $35
NEW***Thursday nights at 6:30PM, starting on September 10th, 2020– Matthew: The King and His Kingdom portrays Jesus as the true King who fulfills the Law the people of Israel have failed to keep and who introduces the new law that will accompany the New Covenant. In this 24-part study of the Gospel of Matthew, presenter Jeff Cavins explains how Jesus is challenging and empowering us to a new level of holiness and shows how we must be thoroughly immersed in the kingdom of heaven on earth, the Church, to live it. This bible study will be led by John Propson and will continue into the Spring of next year, 2021. Cost- $40
NEW***Opportunity for prayer: Discovering a Deeper Relationship With the Holy SpiritJoin us for seven weeks of prayer, starting on September 21st, 2020, following the first seven Wild Goose videos, available on YouTube. The videos, each about 25 minutes long, invite us to deepen our relationship with the Holy Spirit. Participants will watch the videos on their own, pray, and note the movement of the Spirit in their lives. We will meet once a week over Zoom at 7:00 PM Mondays for about an hour to pray together, discuss the message of the videos, and share the graces God has granted us. There is no charge for this program and is led by Cathy Exarhos.
Again, if you would like to take one or both of these studies please e-mail or call me at the above e-mail or phone number.
