Women’s Gather Bible Study

We have a lively & growing group of women who GATHER to study the Bible using the monthly national magazine and Bible Studies of the Women of the ELCA (WELCA). This fall we invite you to come and invite a friend, to a series of Saturday morning gatherings. This is what one of our St. Luke participants had to say:
 
Today’s Bible Study on the Holy Spirit was very good.  It was the 1st Session of 3 Sessions on the Holy Spirit.  It was a great reminder of how the Holy Spirit is with us always.  There was a lot of good discussions entailing how the Holy Spirit has worked in the lives of those in our group.  I am looking forward to our next study when we’ll be meeting in person on Saturday morning, October 16th!  Let the Holy Spirit lead you to a wonderful study on the Holy Spirit! 
In Christ’s love,
Diane Quarles

St. Luke Women’s GATHER Bible, Brunch & Mini-retreat 

“What does it mean for God to be in charge? ”  

Saturday, March 26, 2022
9:15 – 11:45 AM, in the Fellowship Hall

Study written by ordained Lutheran minister Mark Allan Powell, professor emeritus at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, where he taught New Testament for thirty-two years.In March: Eternal life in the Gospel of John – In the fourth Gospel Jesus uses the expression “eternal life” to talk about what he calls the “kingdom of God” in the other Gospels. The phrase does not just refer to life that is eternally long, but also (indeed, especially) to life that is eternally deep—life that is endless in value and meaning. 

 

We will look at some popular passages, including John 3:16 and the story of Jesus and the woman at the well to discover how our lives can be marked by love and purpose. (www.Gathermagazine.org)

St. Luke Women’s GATHER Bible, Brunch & Mini-retreat 

“The Kingdom of God: 
What does it mean What does it mean for God to be in charge? ” 

Saturday, Feb 26, 2022
9:15 – 11:45 AM, in the Fellowship Hall

Study written by ordained Lutheran minister Mark Allan Powell, professor emeritus at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, where he taught New Testament for thirty-two years. In February: Mysteries of the kingdom: Parables, banquets and children – This month we will consider “kingdom parables” and ask how the kingdom of God is like a net or a treasure or a pearl or whatever. We will also look at an “acted parable” in which Jesus dramatizes the “kingdom” as a banquet where honored guests include misfits and outcasts.

And then we will discover (or recall) who we should regard as the greatest in the kingdom and the most important members of any church. (www.Gathermagazine.org) 

What is your pearl of great price? If your house caught on fire, what treasures would you rescue? Come prepared to share.

 The women of Advent 

Our spiritual grandmothers:  Hannah, Mary, Elizabeth and Anna.

Collectively they dealt with the death of a son, the death of a spouse, harassment, infertility, fear, anxiety and grief. Think of them as your spiritual grandmothers, your guides in traversing difficult ground. If we ignore their stories, we miss out on a literal host of resources — and just perhaps, a richer Advent.
