Bible Study

It all began back in 1984 with a small band of women who gathered each Tuesday morning to pray in the Pauline Chapel.

For several years this faithful group gathered to intercede for family and friends in the  presence of the Eucharist. Then the parish decided that it would begin to use the Little Rock Scripture Study to encourage parishioners to study the Word of God.

The women who been gathering for prayer chose to incorporate this program into their Tuesday morning prayer time… The Tuesday  Morning Scripture Study was born! And continues to this day. Each fall, the  group welcomes new participants (both men and women) as well as “old faithfuls”,  bringing a variety of life experiences to the study table.  

Tuesday Morning Bible Study will start the new study “Mystery of God” Mid-March!

We will be having in person and remote zoom classes! Hope to see you there for our next Bible discovery!

 


Dear all those interested in Jesus:The Way, the Truth, and the Life:

I had the opportunity to participate in this Bible study at Our Lady of the Pines Catholic Parish last year and I cannot recommend it enough. The video, book and accompanying workbook are excellent. The video portions were filmed in the Holy Land of Israel which I visited over a year ago. For those of you who have not visited the Holy Land this is an excellent way to "travel" albeit through film to capture the essence, the beauty and the spirit of this truly inspiring place. So much of the teaching is "on site" that one feels as if they are really there and this greatly increases the excitement and energy of this Bible study. I encourage all of you to consider this journey of faith, learning and grace and look forward to joining you when time permits.

God Bless each one of you.

Fr. Chance

Jesus is our savior, our redeemer, our Lord, and our God. Our belief in Jesus is what makes us who we are as Catholics, as Christians, but do we really know him as we should? Who is Jesus for you? Is he a part of your life, or is he at the center of your life as he should be? We invite you to make him the center of your life by joining us for Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life. This 10-week video study program is anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels. We’ll explore 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.

The study is presented by Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Edward Sri and was filmed in the Holy Land so you can experience the extraordinary world in which Jesus lived and taught—the historical context, the politics, the clashing cultures, the history, and the ancient land—and see where the most significant events of his life took place, from his infancy to his ascension.

We will learn how Jesus is God Incarnate, fully divine and fully human. We’ll experience his intimacy with the Father, his revelation of the Father’s love, and his gift of the Holy Spirit to each of us. Most importantly, our encounter with Christ will empower us to know and love him in a new and life-changing way.

Participants will individually view an engaging video presentation online from the comfort of their own home followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship on the Zoom platform using their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. We will begin the Jesus study on Thursday, March 4 from 6-8pm via Zoom. For more information or to register for the study, call Vince Onoja at 719-576-9331 or our parish office. Cost of study guide is $30 per person. We hope you can join us!
