Covenant Bible Study: Part I, Creating the Covenant
 
Reverend Joyce Day is offering the Covenant Bible Study, a three-part Bible study series.
 

There are many ways to study the Bible.  This study looks at Scripture through the lens of the covenant relationship God has established with humanity from the beginning.  The study is divided into three 8-week sections: Creating, Living, and Trusting.  

During this first 8-week session, participants will explore how the covenant came to be and how it developed throughout the centuries covered in the Bible.  The group will meet by Zoom on Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8:00, beginning on June 16.

Letters of Encouragement: Lectio Divina on 1 and 2 Peter
 

Join Marianne Leventry in digging deeper into the letters of Peter.   This summer, we will slowly read 1 Peter and 2 Peter by using Lectio Divina.  Peter gives words of encouragement.  He urges believers to remember how much Jesus suffered for them and to trust God to care for them.  He gives instruction on how to live as Christians in a sinful world and have hope for the future.

 

This nine-week study will start on Wednesday, June 10, at noon via Zoom.  For more information, contact Marianne Leventry at marianne@stjconnect.org or call 252-752-6154.
