Topic Insights into the Early Church: Corinthians, Timothy, Titus, Philemon & James

CREEDS is a parish wide bible study designed to meet the spiritual hunger of both beginners and veterans. This year, under the guidance of Fr. Bob Carroll, O.Carm., Ph.D., we will continue to explore the story of the early Church through Pauline letters written to the Corinthians, Timothy, Titus and Philemon, and the letter of James to the Jewish-Christian communities of the Diaspora. Through these letters we will enter the world of the early Christians. We will experience the challenges and conflict that they face as they try to live according to “The Way” that they have accepted by their baptism into the mystery of Christ. And, with them, we will receive the support, encouragement, admonishment, and guidance necessary to live as the Body of Christ.

The 2022 study will begin on Wednesday, September 21 and will continue through April 26, Participants choose to attend either the morning session from 9:30-11:30am or the evening session from 7:00-9:00pm on Wednesdays.   Whether this is your first-time studying scripture, or you are a seasoned veteran, CREEDS will enhance your faith life in wonderful ways through prayer, individual study, small group discussion and large group presentation. Fr. Bob Carroll is the author and lecturer for CREEDS and welcomes active participation at the weekly meetings.
