NEW! In-person Bible Study
JESUS: the Way, the Truth, and the Life
Starting Wednesday, January 20th: 10:00 AM CTS
and Thursday, January 21st: 6:15 PM CTS
The marvelous treasures of the Catholic Faith—the Eucharist, Mary, the saints, and the Creed—are all centered on a single figure: Jesus Christ. Jesus is more than a historical or theological figure. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our Lord, and our God. While many of us already know a lot about him, how well can we say we really know him? Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a new and fresh look at Jesus—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, and what he did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.

In-person/Online Bible Study
The Bible Timeline
The Story of Salvation
Wednesday, September 30th: 6:30 PM CTS
This is where your Bible study begins, with a fascinating 24 week study, that takes you on a journey through the entire Bible. You will go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. You will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and see how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our Catholic faith.
Classes will be offered in two formats. Students may attend either or both sessions:
Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30pm, beginning on September 30, 2020. This will be an in-classroom course. Bring your Bible. Please wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Class size will need to be limited to 10 people, so please contact John Bundscho (see below) to register.
There will also be an on-line, virtual class using the Zoom app on Thursday mornings at 10:00am, repeating the Wednesday session. Virtual classes will begin October 1, 2020 and will be about one hour. Likewise, please contact John Bundscho to register for the virtual class. Your e-mail address will be needed in order to send you a link to access the virtual classes.
Regardless of which class you want to attend, all students will need to purchase their course materials (“Study Set”) in advance, directly from Ascension Press (ascensionpress.com), which includes access to the videos on-line. Course materials cost approximately $36 plus shipping and tax. After your purchase, you should receive an e-mail from Ascension with a link and instructions to access the videos. Couples taking the course together may share the workbook and materials.
For assistance and instructions in signing up, and for more information on how the two classes will be conducted, please contact John Bundscho at email@example.com or 985-264-6652.
Online Tuesday Morning Bible Study
“The Gospel of Mark”
Tuesdays: 10:00 AM CTS
Thought to be the earliest of the four Gospels, the Gospel of Mark is a fast-moving, vivid account of the ministry, suffering, and death of Jesus. Enter into a rich encounter with this preacher, wonder-worker, and messiah, whose very life delivered an urgent message about repentance, transformation, and the meaning of suffering in a life poured out for others. Part One covers Mark 1:1-9:32, providing an in-depth study of Jesus’ ministry of healing and preaching.
The online study meetings will use ZOOM video and audio conferencing. We will help you connect with Zoom if you wish. We will also send you the study guides through email. However, you will need to have a laptop or pc or mac, or tablet to participate in this Bible Study.
