ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Several Adult Bible Studies are offered throughout the year at St. Thomas More usually meeting in the fall, spring, & summer.
Epic: The Early Church
We have the story of the earliest Church, during the time of the Apostles, from the Acts of the Apostles and the many letters in the New Testament. But how did the Church continue to develop and grow after the Apostles had all passed away? Most of us are not familiar with THAT part of the story. So this fall, we will explore that, with the help of our friends at Ascension Press.
Dates: Tuesdays, Sept 5-Nov21 and Fridays, Sept 8-Nov17
Workbook cost: $28
(scholarships available if necessary; please speak to Judy Ries)
Registration after Masses will be the weekend of August 26-27 and 13-14. The workbook is $40; please make checks payable to St Thomas More.
Discover the extraordinary story of the Church’s beginnings—a time of courageous saints, brilliant philosophers, eloquent theologians, ruthless emperors, and heroic martyrs. St. John Paul II said, “Christ is the foundation and center of history; he is its meaning and ultimate goal.” Epic: The Early Church encourages you to grow closer to Christ through a deeper understanding of his Church. Here you will get to know the people and events that shaped its first five hundred years. You will see how the Church Fathers boldly confronted early challenges to the Faith—challenges similar to the ones we face today. You will learn the stories behind the first ecumenical councils and the Roman persecutions and meet many of the men and women who gave their lives to defend the Faith. The heroic stories of the early leaders and martyrs of the Church will strengthen and affirm your own walk of faith.
