Bible Studies:
We welcome and encourage anyone to attend one (or more) of the Bible Studies we offer.
Bible studies are a great way to strengthen your knowledge of the Bible.  At the same time, you have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussions with others who have the same passion for the Bible as you do.
 
Below are the current Bible studies being offered at Beautiful Savior.  Each Bible study is approximately 1 hour long and does not require you to be there every week.  Come as often as it fits your schedule.

9:30 am Sundays

Leader: Pastor Chris
“Book of James:
Faith That Works”
 – Women’s Bible Study –
6 pm Mondays or 9 am Thursdays
Leader: Chayla Berger (Mondays)
Leader: Shirley Elsner (Thursdays)
Could God have used the process of evolution as a mechanism to create all the life forms we find today?  Is evolution even true scientific fact or a gross misunderstanding?  In this video-based Bible study, Dr. Terry Mortensen from Answers in Genesis challenges the validity of evolution not only through the lens of the Bible, but also through the lens of observable science.
Christians believe not only that the world had a beginning (creation) and a glorious middle (our Lord’s death and resurrection), but also that it will have an end.  The narratives of the Bible inspire us; the truths of our faith encourage us; but we long for the promised ending, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.  Without it, the Christian “story” makes no sense.  This study explores what the Bible has to say about the end times and what the divine Author has prepared, which is far greater than any of us could write or imagine, for His story ends in glory – the glory of Jesus’ return and the resurrection of God’s faithful into that glory forever.
The Book of James is our focus in our Women’s Bible Study.
We all want a faith that won’t let us down in times of trouble or loss, uncertainty or fear.  A faith that can pull us through the worst – and best – times in our lives. This is the kind of faith that James writes about.  It is the faith that we practice day by day.  Studying James will help us grow a steadfast faith that can carry us through life.  
This Bible study ends Nov 12.
 
The Thursday morning Bible study
will be starting a new study titled “Advent of the Savior” starting on Thursday, November 15 at 9 am.  
This study will introduce you to the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus.  It will remind you of God’s faithfulness and power to fulfill his promises, and draw you into the love that brought Christ to earth.  On a seemingly ordinary day, in a manger in Bethlehem, the promised Messiah slipped into the world as a tiny baby.  Thousands longed for his coming, few witnessed his entrance, but millions have been changed by his life.  
The cost of the book is $7.
Note: There won’t be Bible study on November 22 due to Thanksgiving.  The study will continue on Thursday mornings until Christmas.
A sign-up sheet is in the narthex.
 
Please note that this study will only be available on Thursday mornings – the Monday evening Bible study will resume in January with a different topic.
