Some Bible studies are gender-specific, and others are open to everyone. The Advent’s Bible studies meet throughout the week and are usually led by the same people each week; the style of the group typically depends on the its size. The Advent has a talented team of engaging and faithful Bible study leaders, all of whom love the Gospel message and wish for others to mine the riches of the Bible.
In addition to our many Sunday morning offerings and other special classes throughout the year, we offer the following regularly scheduled weekday Bible studies:
Women’s Open Bible study in Romans
Mondays (9:15-10:15), at Cranmer House, September 10, through mid-May
Deborah Leighton will teach an open Bible study from Romans, digging deeply into the Word’s meaning for its first hearers and for us today, while also offering lots of opportunities for questions, clarification, and discussion. Drop-ins welcome.
Women’s Study:Who do you say that I am?” – Encountering the Real Jesus
Mondays (11:00-12:30), September 10-November 12, in Clingman Commons.
Deborah Leighton will offer this ten-week study, team teachings with others, including Fran Cade, Virginia Hornsby, and Marilyn Dixon. The study will involve a short teaching (20 minutes), followed by a verse-by-verse Scripture study in smaller groups. Every group will end by spending time in prayer together.
If you work during the day or if you have small children at home, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to study the Word with your sisters in Christ. If you want a deeper relationship with the real Jesus revealed in Scripture, then this is the study for you! To reserve a spot, order an optional lunch, and sign up for the possible nursery, contact Anita Gray (Anita@CathedralAdvent.com, 443-8550) before September 6.
