Bible Study

St. Mel Scripture & Religious Study Program


 St. Jerome states:

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." 

St. Gregory the Great proclaims,

"Get to know the Heart of God through the Word of God."


There will be four new Scripture and Religious Study classes offered in January 2020:


Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance, an 8-week study, meets Tuesday mornings following the 8:30am Mass.

     Presenter Jeff Cavins explores what Paul's letter to the Ephesians tells us about the nature of the Church - as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride and as an army. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance shows the treasures that await us as adopted sons and daughters in the family of God.


Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John, an 8-week study, meets Tuesday evenings.

     Following Christ takes more than simply believing in him or doing what he asks of us. Jesus wants you to be more than just a believer - He wants you to be his disciple and friend. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is a guide to a personal encounter with Christ. Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of renewed friendship with Christ. 


Lectio Mark: Faith Not Fear, a 14-week study, meets Tuesday evenings.

     Is the Gospel of Mark , the shortest of the four gospels, only a "condensed" version of the life of Christ? What does it have to offer us that the Gospels of Matthew, Luke and John do not? In Lectio Mark: Faith Not Fear, Dr. Tim Gray combines insight and practical guidance to make this action-packed story of Christ's life and teaching come to life.


David the King, a 6-week study, meets Wednesday evenings.

     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.


 All the classes include a video, discussion and workbook. Fees are minimal.
