Old Testament Military Leaders as Precursors of the Messiah: Expectation and Reality

 

In these four weeks we will study the militant leadership of Joshua, Gideon, David, and Ahab, making brief mention of other leaders in Old Testament narratives. In our final class we will look at how expectations based on these ancient heroes were confounded and redefined by Jesus, the unexpected Messiah. Everyone is cordially invited to join us at 9 AM in the Navajo Room for lively discussion and fellowship.

Monday Bible Study  

Monday morning Bible study meets on Zoom at 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Now we are reading The Book of Psalms together. After reading from the Scripture, we discuss the passage to discover its relevance for lives today. All are always welcome to join us as we “read, mark, learn and inwardly digest” the meaning.  If you have any questions, feel free to speak with Twila, Erlis or Mother Lucy Ann.

Please consider joining us as we explore the Scriptures.

Our Story:

St. Mary's has been on the corner of Lancaster and Louella Avenue for over a hundred and thirty years.  St. Mary’s and the village of Wayne grew up together.  If you like, you can find a historical account of that growth HERE, but please know, our focus is not on our past, but rather it is on the church of the 21st century.  

 

As an Episcopal Church, we love our liturgy.  We will pray and sing and learn together through liturgy that honors God and feeds our soul.   When you come visit, we will welcome you with open arms.  As we grow in our relationship, we will hold your hand and cry with you if you are sick or distressed, and we will rejoice with you as you celebrate life's milestones. We will challenge you to learn more about God and how God will reconcile the world back unto himself. And we will prepare you to go out into the world and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
