Bible Study and Prayer

Wednesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

When:  Every Wednesday 7:30-8:30am

Where: John Thompson Room at Christ Church

What:  The Men’s Bible Study Group meets at 7:30 each Wednesday morning in the John Thompson Room to discuss the Scripture readings scheduled for the services on the following Sunday.    We rotate among those present the reading of scripture prescribed by the Lectionary for that Sunday (the Old Testament Lesson, the Psalm, the Epistle and the Gospel).   We pause after each reading for discussion and reflection. The Church subscribes to the resource, Synthesis CE, which is distributed monthly in advance to the participants.    In a two page format per Sunday, it provides background information and commentary on the scripture readings prescribed by the Lectionary, so the participants have a “head start” for the group discussions. We generally have five or six participants (sometimes one or more via Skype) each Wednesday morning.

After our sessions of about an hour or slightly more, many of us adjourn to City Market for coffee and rolls.

Sunday Night Bible Study

When:  Sunday evenings at 7PM this group meets at member’s homes; open to couples and individuals.

Where:  Rotates among parishioner’s homes

What:  The Sunday Night Bible Study is a group of men and women (couples and singles) dedicated to spiritual growth and finding ways to put our faith into practice.  We usually alternate between Bible studies and book studies often using a workbook of some kind.  Our book studies have included writings of authors like C.S. Lewis, Henry Blackaby, Beth Moore, and Julian of Norwich.   We end each session talking about those in our church family who are in need of prayer, allowing us to create a list for private prayer during the week.
