Gospel Readings of the Church Year

ZOOM ON-LINE BIBLE STUDY (On-going and in progress)

In this study we will discuss the Gospel reading for the day. The Gospel text carries the theme for the Sundays of the Church Year. As we gather, online via Zoom, we are ensconced in the safety of our own home, yet able to see fellow participates and engage in edifying discussion. A weekly discussion handout will be emailed each week the participants.

United in Thought, Word, and Deed; the Church of the New Testament

“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.” This is how Peter, in his first epistle, instructs the church to live. There are so many questions nowadays about how the church should think, act, and speak in the 21st century. Do these instructions from Peter still hold up? In this class we will be looking at how the New Testament speaks of the life of the Body of Christ, the church: her thoughts, words, and actions. From the Gospels to Revelation, we’ll look at the church’s life then and what we are to learn from her today.

LEADER: Vicar Alvaro Witt Duarte

LOCATION: 2nd floor of School, Rm #205

TIME: Sundays, 9:15-10:15 a.m.

Book Study “Being Disciples: Essentials of the Christian Life” by Rowan Williams

Williams always writes beautifully yet simply on the life of the Church. In this short book he addresses the basics of being a disciple of Jesus. “Discipleship,” says Williams, “is a state of being. Discipleship is about how we live; not just the decisions we make, not just the things we believe, but a state of being.” This book is not just about following Christ, but also about growing in that discipleship, not being stagnant in our faith. Williams provides us with plenty to discuss and reflect on.

The book is only $10 on Amazon.


TIME: Tuesdays 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
