Biblical Studies

Reading and Discussing Scripture in Small, Lay-Led Groups

St. Martin’s continues its long history of biblical studies by offering several opportunities to meet weekly with a group to read the scriptures together. New participants are welcome at any time. All reading and discussion is contained within the sessions, and by design there is no homework. Come and go as you need to.

Bringing the Word to life through thoughtful conversation provides unlimited possibilities for discovery.

Approaching The Gospels Together

Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Houston Room
New members can join at any time - discussions are self contained and it does not matter if you haven’t followed along to this point. Cathy Glazer leads this group.

Jeremiah

Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Houston Room
We’re small and informal, and you can come once or as often as you’re inclined. We tend to use the passage we’re reading as a springboard for reflection on both its significance when written and its meaning in our lives and the world around us. We are restarting reading the book of Jeremiah and will move on to the next selection by group consensus. No previous experience with a Bible study group is necessary, and there is no “homework” between meetings. New members welcome at any time. Coffee and tea are available!

The Gospel of Luke

Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Hilary House
We finished Mark and Matthew. Now we will read Luke and then John. New participants are welcome at any time.
