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.

Tuesdays

10:30 a.m. to noon in the Houston Room
This session has ended for the summer, returning late September 
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 continues to lead this group.

Ecclesiastes

Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Houston Room
Meeting through June 28th and then returning late September or early October.
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 pick which book(s) of the Bible to read 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 Gospels

Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Hilary House
Meeting through June. Returning early September.
We finished Mark and have moved on to Matthew. After we finish reading Matthew, will read Luke and then John. This will probably take us until the fall of 2018, with a break at some point for the summer. David Contasta and Pat Silva lead this group. New participants are welcome at any time.
