Tuesday Afternoon Bible Study
Come join the Afternoon Bible Study Group on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th Tuesdays in October and November at 12:30 PM in the Heritage House for a series called “The Footprints of God.” In this four session DVD video series, Steve Ray, a Catholic convert, speaker, and author, takes us on excursions through the holy sites described in each of the bible stories. We will visit places few people ever get to see making the ancient scripture stories of the Old and New Testament come alive and see the actual sites depicted in each story. Steve examines the scripture, culture and archaeology of each story. We journey with Steve Ray through the Bible stories on the following dates:
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 – “Moses,” Signs, Sacraments, and Salvation
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 – “David/Solomon” Expanding the Kingdom
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 – “Apostolic Fathers” Handing on the Faith
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 – “Paul” Contending for the Faith
For more information or questions please contact Lorraine Santarlas at 856-234-8426.
October series on the Church's Theological Tradition
The Catholic Church has a very rich theological tradition. However, this tradition is sometimes not truly understood by Catholics and not truly shared with others who are not Roman Catholics. We have an opportunity to think about this tradition in Heritage House at 7 pm on October 4, 11, 18, 25.
We won’t get technical – just enough introduction in each session to get us thinking. Responses of participants to the topic of the session are so very welcome. We can all help each other. Questions? Please contact Richard Lohkamp, email@example.com
