CURRENT SMALL GROUPS:

David The King -

Join us for Bishop Robert Barron’s newest study and experience how the whole New Testament opens up once we see it through the person of David.

David’s kingship recalls that of Adam in the Garden of Eden, and also foreshadows that of Jesus, the son of David. Adam was the first king and steward of the rightly ordered Garden of Eden. He was called to govern the garden according to God’s mind and purposes, yet he did not fulfill his kingly responsibility. Long after Adam, David emerged as the model king who would restore order in the Garden and bring the world under the lordship of God. But like Adam, David fell, and his reign ushered in a succession of compromised kings and rejected prophets... until the coming of the King of kings and Lord of lords, Jesus Christ.

The Great Adventure Bible Timeline - The internationally popular Bible study returns to St. John’s this fall! This journey through all of the Bible is different from others in that it puts the people, places, and events of Sacred Scripture into chronological order using a unique color-coded system that makes it simpler to read and understand. Many people at our parish have already completed this study and seen their understanding of and appreciation for the Bible dramatically enriched. You can join them! The Bible Timeline will be offered on Sunday mornings after the 9:00am Mass starting on October 6. The 24 weeks of this study have the power to grow your faith and make the Scripture readings at Mass come alive for you. Call or email Lacy at (410) 231-1754 or ljscheiber@gmail.com for more information or to sign up.
