Fall Bible Study Opportunities

Join us as we study God’s word together in an upcoming Bible study. There are several options, including different days and times to accommodate all schedules. More information is available on the Saint Luke’s website.

Mid-Week Offerings

Jericho Road: Living WaterMany of us want to read the Bible, but we just don’t know how. As a result, we stick with cherished stories or phrases while another thousand pages goes unread and unloved. This semester, under the theme of living water, we will explore God’s Holy Word, seldom encountered people and corners of Scripture to find stories with remarkable application and relevance for us today. This study meets in person on Sunday mornings during the 10 o’clock fellowship hour. In addition, the study releases every Monday morning via the Saint Luke’s podcast. To listen, simply search Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church or Jericho Road on your apple podcast app. To receive emails specific to this semester’s Jericho Road study, please contact kclinton@saint-lukes.com.

Grace and Truth — A discipleship class for women in their 20s and 30s.  We will study scripture, pray and build friendship. Along the way we will have fun exploring some practical domestic skills (think a little cooking, a little flower arranging, a little home decorating)! We will meet weekly (or bi-weekly…), but you may drop in as your schedule permits as there is nothing to prepare ahead of time.  For more information, please join Morgan Cook.

Abide: An adult formation where we study scripture, liturgy, and cultivate our spiritual practices with “Life in The Vine.” For those who seek to take seriously Jesus’ challenge “to change and become like children” (Matthew 18:3), this book serves as an invitation to the same joyful journey. Beginning Sunday, September 18. Open to all ages at 6:00pm in Rm 214. We will meet the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month, and you can drop in any week- nothing to prepare ahead of time. Please contact Leah Rice to signup or for more information, leah.rice@icloud.com

No Other Gods: The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ – Our lives revolve around our deepest needs and greatest treasures. Relationships. Family. Financial security. Private hopes and dreams. Most of our desires are healthy. Yet these longings can become passions we not only pursue, but worship. In this eight week study, discover the freedom in surrender, the healing in worship, and the joy found in exchanging everyday gods for the one true God. This study by Kelly Minter is open to all women. Monday evenings from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. beginning September 19 in the Tilson Room. Led by Patty Gilbert. Contact Patty for more information! 205-821-4424 or Pattyggilbert@gmail.com. We hope to see you there!

Waiting: A Time of GrowthMost of us find waiting and uncertainty to be unpleasant and unsettling, and we often consider waiting as a waste of time. However, scripture tells a different story. Please join the Pondering Scripture Bible Study this fall as we look at various parts of the Bible that encourage us to view times of waiting as rich periods of growth and deeper connection with God. Wednesdays, 1:30pm, Tilson Room. Led by Sandy Porter: sporter@saint-lukes.com or 205-802-6207. All are welcome.
