UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE

Sundays at 10 AM via Zoom beginning September 11

Have you ever tried to read the Bible and found it confusing? THEN THIS IS THE BIBLE STUDY FOR YOU!

Many of us want to read the Bible because we know it is God’s Word, but we can give up because it seems so complicated. The Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible study helps us to get the “big picture” by showing how fourteen narrative books of the  Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church…and breaks the story into 12 periods. As we study together in a virtual group, we will discover the story of salvation history and explore how each of us fits into God’s plan. The unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart that accompanies the study arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order. This study is great for beginners and experienced students of the Bible, alike.

To order your materials, go to Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom

Mondays at 7 PM via Zoom (and in Rosemarie’s home) beginning September 19th

Acts is one of three “foundational” studies that we offer on a three-year cycle. It instructs us on how to live our lives by telling the story of how a few Christians, empowered by the Holy Spirit, were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth. They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all of this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men.

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom traces how the gospel witness spread outward in waves from Jerusalem, and reveals how the seeds of Church structure and authority took root. Presenter Jeff Cavins shows how the joys and struggles of the early Christians in living the life of Christ apply to us today.

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom will help you to see your place in the Church as a disciple of Christ.

Learn more and RSVP by writing to Rosemarie at RMcKenney@sjasr.org.


JESUS: the Way, the Truth and the Life

Coming on Tuesday evenings in the winter!

If you haven’t experienced this study, you will want to consider this opportunity. Alpha gives us a deep introduction to Jesus; this study helps us to get to know Him by studying His life in the very places He lived and taught.

Filmed beautifully on location in the Holy Land, this unique study takes a new and fresh look at Jesus—Who He is, what He is really like, what He taught, and what He did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on Him as you come to know and love Him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.
