Our parish will offer The Bible Timeline beginning on Sunday, February 2 at 11:30 am at Our Lady of Grace. Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is often difficult. The good news is that you can understand the Bible, and The Bible Timeline, a twenty-four-part Bible study, makes it easy. This study is in English, DVD-based with discussion. In this revolutionary approach to Bible study, The Bible Timeline divides the Bible into twelve color-coded time periods that make it easier to follow its narrative thread. Using a unique color-coded chart, you will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and discover how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith. For more information or to register, please contact Kirk Broom at 832-567-7654. Cost for materials is $36.00, which includes study book, timeline foldout and bookmark.
