Adult Bible Study, Faith Enrichment & Catechetical Classes

Adult Bible Study

The purposes of the Bible Study Classes are (1) to study and meditate on the Holy Scriptures in conjunction with Holy Tradition and (2) to utilize the processes of Observation, Interpretation, and Application in order to strengthen and grow in our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The Adult Bible Study class meets on Thursday mornings at 10:45 and is led by John Lucas. The class meets in the Boardroom of the Arthur L. Sarris Community Center.

Faith Enrichment Class

A course which is designed for those who desire to learn about the Orthodox Faith and for those who already embrace the Faith wishing to enhance and enrich their religious understanding of the Orthodox Church and its Services.  Class will meet starting in October following Paraklesis on Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the Boardroom of the Arthur L. Sarris Community Center.  Everyone is encouraged to attend Paraklesis at 6 p.m.

Adult Catechetical Class

The Adult Catechetical Class complements the teaching of the Church found in her Liturgical life. The Church’s Scriptures, Fathers, Saints, Calendar, Vespers, Orthros, Lenten Services, and the Divine Liturgy, all contribute to the instruction and purpose of the Class. The purpose of the Class is to help the Orthodox faithful in three ways: first, the Class increases the faithful’s faith in the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Son of God; second, the Class increases the faithful’s hope and trust in God; and thirdly, the Class increases the faithful's love for God and for neighbor. The instruction of the Class meets this purpose by presenting the Holy Scriptures and the Holy Tradition of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. The Class convenes for about 20 minutes after Communion most Sunday mornings in St. Barbara’s Chapel.
