Holy Family Invites You to an Online Bible Study  

Holy Family Bible Study:  “Exploring the Bible”                                                                                   

Schedule:  Tuesday Mornings at 10:00 a.m. beginning June 2, 2020

Content:  Join us as we explore together some of the following questions: What is the significance of the bible stories?  What is the source of scripture?  How were the books of the bible chosen? Are there other books that were not chosen and why?  Who is Jesus, what are his teachings, and how does his ministry fit in with the entire biblical story, as well as our story?

Outline:  5-6 one hour weekly sessions. No books are necessary.  A suggested reading list will be provided along with an outline of the entire session.

Accessibility: The sessions will be held online using Zoom.  Zoom is a user friendly meeting platform.  It is free and there is no need for a personal Zoom account.  Participants will receive a weekly email invitation to join each session.  The email will contain a link and a phone number to the respective session.  To join, participants simply click on the link provided in the email invitation or call in using the phone umber provided. Zoom meetings can be accessed using a computer, cell phone, tablet computer or landline.
