Gather for an online study of the Gospel of Mark, the earliest of the four gospels.  The text description says that, “the Gospel of Mark is a fast-moving, vivid account of the ministry, suffering, and death of Jesus.”  Enter into a rich encounter with Jesus as portrayed by this evangelist whose message is one of urgency, repentance, and transformation.  Part One covers the beginning of the Gospel, up through Mark 9:32.

S. Doris Oberembt OSB will facilitate these six sessions which includes an introduction, study, reflection, discussion, videos, and prayer, using materials from the Little Rock Scripture Study.

Scripture Study: Acts of the Apostles


Wednesday Evenings, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Central Time
Meeting on Zoom
Part I, beginning Sept. 21

Six Sessions, Fall 2022

Join us in learning to follow Jesus as did the early Christians in the Acts of the Apostles.  Inspired by the Holy Spirit, the Bible and the excellent resources of the Little Rock Scripture Study will be our guides.  The text description asks us, “What does it mean for a community to follow Jesus?”  This question is still relevant for us today as we witness and learn from the struggles of the early church.

The sessions, beginning Sept. 28, 2022, will be facilitated by S. Mary Jo Polak OSB.  On Wednesday evenings we will share insights, watch a video, and take time to enhance our personal way of praying with the Scriptures as did the early Christians.  We will include an introductory session on praying lectio divina, the ancient way of praying with the Scriptures.

Programs for Spiritual Growth

The Word of God is Alive and Active!

What do the Scriptures mean for my life? How can something written 2000 years ago speak to me today? What can these strange stories, with old-fashioned examples, tell me about how I should live?  The answer is that we believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well, and speaks to us through the Bible as we can hear.  “The Word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:22).”  In our sharing groups, we may learn about the times and places of the Bible, but more importantly, we share and pray about how these words can shape our lives today.
