Bible Study

follow_me-graphic

What does your relationship with Christ look like? Do you see Jesus as simply a great teacher? A prophet? A man of great wisdom? Or do you see him as more? Jesus calls us to be more than simply believers—he calls us to be his disciples and his friends. Do you consider yourself a disciple and friend of Christ? The Gospel of John shows us that God became like us; he became a man so that we could become like him and grow closer to him. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ.

If you want to know what it means to really follow Christ, and if you would like to have a deeper relationship with him, then I invite you to join us for Follow Me, beginning on March 13th at 9:30am in classroom A. You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help us to grow in fellowship as a parish as we grow closer to Christ together.

Purchase study guides at Ascension Press.com. Deacon Bruce will facilitate.

Call Patti Musto for more information at 843-665-0169.

Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will learn what it takes to follow him. You will experience  the joy of divine friendship, and you will see how God— and only God—can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.

these days, only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs: together they should
not equal anther full meal. Eating between meals is not
permitted, but liquids, including milk and juice are allowed.
