Advent Bible Study
The People who Waited: Luke 1 & 2
Pastor Sarah will lead a Bible Study as a way to connect to Scripture and community during the season leading up to Christmas.
The study will focus on key characters in Luke, chapters 1 and 2. They heard the good news of Jesus’ coming and responded with a song. These songs have been sung in worship services since the early church. We’ll learn more about the lives of these characters and their responses to the good news. We may sing too. All are welcome!
December 1, 8 and 15. 7-8:15 ET
- Dec 1: Zechariah and Elizabeth (Benedictus). Luke 1:5-24, 57-80
- Dec 8: Mary, mother of Jesus (Magnificat). Luke 1:26-56
- Dec 15: Simeon and Anna (Nunc Dimitis). Luke 2: 21-40
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
meets from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the church office building.
Due to COVID-19 the Bible study is meeting via Zoom. If you’d like to join, contact the church office for the zoom link.
Led by Pastor Sarah, it uses the process called lectio divina. We begin by sharing our highs and lows from the week. Then, we read a Bible passage (usually the gospel for the upcoming Sunday) four different times, responding to different questions after every reading. By the end of the process, we have delved deep into the text and made connections with one another. All are welcome, and it isn’t necessary to attend every week to be part of this study.
