Old Testament Scripture Study
Dec 12 @ 9:15 am – 10:30 am

How well do you know the story line of the Bible?  Do you ever puzzle over where each individual fits in the timeline? Do you wonder about historical context and why certain people may have acted the way they did? Do you wish you knew the story better, so that you were able to name the characters and know the most important events? Take our Bible Basics Fun Quiz and see how you do!
Each Monday morning during Advent, beginning at 9:15 AM, St John Vianney Parish will be offering an opportunity to brush up on your Bible Basics with an Old Testament Scripture Study. As we prepare our hearts for the celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord, we will look into all that led up to that glorious event, from the beginning of creation. This series is meant for us to practice our story line, and learn a little bit more about what we hear in the first reading every Sunday.
