Catholics Reflecting Experiencing Evangelizing Declaring Scripture
2020/2021 CREEDS SCRIPTURE STUDY
“What’s Next?”: The Reason for Our Hope
CREEDS is a parish wide bible study designed to meet the spiritual hunger of both beginners and veterans. Please join us on Wednesdays, contact-free via Zoom meetings. This year’s study is timely – “What’s Next?” will offer a study of the afterlife, of eternity, of the “last things.” Our presenter, Fr. Bob Carroll, O.Carm., Ph.D., will present this series based on Scriptures from Isaiah, Daniel, St. Paul’s letters, and current theological studies about our eternal destiny. We will learn how God’s people grew in their understanding of the afterlife. We will see how Christ’s life, death. resurrection and ascension brought completion to the mystery of eternal life. And we will deepen our understanding of what it means to pray the final words of the Apostle’s Creed, “I believe in…the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen”
The 2020 study will officially kick off on Wednesday morning September 23 continuing through April 7, 2021. Participants choose to attend either the morning session from 9:30-11:30am or the evening session from 7:00-9:00pm. This year our study will begin on-line using the ZOOM application or Zoom.us website on your computer. Each registrant must be able to use their own device (PC, laptop, smart phone, or tablet) to access Zoom. For those interested, we will have an Orientation Session on Wednesday, September 16 at 9:30am & 7:00pm to demonstrate how we will be utilizing Zoom for our sessions. Once registered we will send you an instructional email on “How to get started.”
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.
The $75 registration fee includes the 23-week study and all materials. If you have questions or concerns, please call Luanne Roth at (630) 229-1876.
