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.

Beginning Sunday, September 13
the Sunday morning adult Bible study will meet in-person at 9:30 am.  Beautiful Savior uses a united curriculum; all grade levels, even adults, will study the same Bible lesson every Sunday in hopes that it will foster discussion between members and equip families for faith formation in the home.
The four Gospels and the book of Acts contain many miracles.  They cause people to wonder how God’s rule presents itself.  Certainly, miracles demonstrate God’s compassionate acts toward people in need.  But they do more than help someone out of a difficult situation.  In the New Testament, miracles work together with the words of Jesus to identify Him as the Son of God and the Savior of the world.  The miracles help point to the coming of God’s kingdom through Jesus.
Perhaps you’ve seen one of those religious shows that claim to perform miraculous healings.  Maybe you’ve heard the message that if you have enough faith, you will be cured, or someone won’t die.  Like a sales pitch, the phrase “claim a miracle” tells us to expect it, and it will happen.
The Bible’s message is much different.  Yes, miracles happen – even today.  But to expect one or claim one from God is not the promise given in Scripture.  Instead, Jesus’ gifts of forgiveness and eternal life are the promises we claim and expect.
We are currently studying the book “Love Rules: A Study of the Ten Commandments”.  What do the Ten Commandments do for you?  Do they send you on a guilt trip?  Are they a mirror of your frailties?  Or do they hold life-changing love?  This Bible study addresses one commandment each week and then follows up with four devotions from different angles.
Cost of the book is $15.
