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.

St. Nick is not just some fanciful figure who sprang from the human imagination. St. Nick actually existed in history. Although known for his generosity, St. Nick also made other significant contributions to the early Christian church.
 
Come discover more about the man who had a profound impact upon the world – a far more different one from selling shavers, Coca-Cola and other products.  Instead, learn about a follower of the babe of Bethlehem, a devoted servant of the Christ of the cross and a believer in the savior of the empty tomb.
False Christs are portrayed, talked about and beloved within North American culture. Like imitation Elvises roaming the streets of Las Vegas, imitation Christs roam in and out of our spiritual conversations, lives and beliefs.
 
These counterfeits may seem like Jesus, but they couldn’t be further from the real deal. There is mascot Jesus, and Jesus, the giver of bling. Maybe you have heard of Jesus, the social justice warrior, or Jesus, the teddy bear. Do you know these false Christs? Do you worship them? You might be surprised at the answers.
 
Join us as we examine Dr. Matt Richard’s book that not only identifies 12 common false Christs found in our culture but also reveals the true Jesus Christ found in the pages of Holy Scripture.
We will begin a new women’s Bible study on “Prayer”.  This study is from the LifeGuide Bible study at Intervarsity Press.
 
We pray for our own needs and for the needs of others.  We pray in the face of conflict, and we pray for forgiveness.  And we can learn how to pray by praying and being prayed for by others. Our Biblical examples will include Mary, Abraham, Moses and Daniel. 
 
We will be gaining new insights and experience in the adventure of prayer. Please sign up for the study in the narthex.  If you have questions, please call Loretta Swanson,
