Want to Grow Closer to God by Learning More About the Bible?
Saint Peter’s Adult Faith Formation is offering
two opportunities this fall
Sometimes we all can feel torn between the competing demands of
this world and our faith. The book of James is one of the most practical
books of the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs, it is a book of wisdom, a
collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday
life. Come learn the secret to finding joy in the midst of trials. This study
will help us see how God’s wisdom helps us face temptation and suffering.
- The Tuesday Morning Bible Study will meet beginning on
September 10 at 9:15am in the Divine Mercy Room to
study The Book of James: Pearls for Wise Living.
- Please contact our Office of Adult Faith Formation at
301-774-0162 for more information and to order your
workbook in time to start on September 10.
- Cost: $30
The evening group will be studying the Acts of the Apostles. In Acts:
the Spread of the Kingdom
, we will learn how Christ’s Kingdom on
earth is empowered. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened
by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing and restoring outcasts
in the same way that Jesus did during his ministry on earth. What can
we learn from this study? We can see how the Holy Spirit guided the
Apostles in Truth, how the seeds of Church structure and authority take
root, how conflicts were resolved in the early stages of Church develop-
ment and how we should live day-to-day as disciples of Christ.
- This 20-week program will begin at 7:30 pm on September
10 in the Parish Hall.
- Please register by calling our Office of Adult Faith Formation
at 301-774-0162. Early registration guarantees a workbook on
the first night of class.
- Cost: $35.00
