ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Next semester, Immaculate Parish will be offering the study of the book of Ephesians. Paul's letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church - as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God's great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance is an 8 part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out. This study will meet Mondays either 10:00am - Noon or 6:30-8:30pm beginning Monday, January 28th at Immaculate Parish. Books are available for $18.00. Please contact Diane Willis to reserve a book. firstname.lastname@example.org
