This online course has been developed by Gordon Conwell in Charlotte. It is a multimedia, immersive Bible Study that combines lecture, video, historical context, scholarly commentary and real life application of scripture. The material covers the whole Bible and is broken down into 6 studies ( 3 Old Testament and 3 New Testament) each of which have several courses. You can learn more at https://biblejourney.com/.

Tuesday

Alpha

Tuesdays at 7 pm via Zoom
September 8 – November 3

Alpha is a nine week casual, fun, and fascinating look at the Christian faith.  It is designed for those seeking information about Christianity’s basics, but it also provides “veteran Christians” with a wonderful way to meet people and further explore their faith.

Both theology and the philosophy behind Alpha serve as the DNA of St. Michael’s Church.

The message Alpha offers is 100% scripturally-based, and wavers not an inch from God’s truth. However, the course also makes clear that we welcome you where you are.  Come explore, build relationships, and share your point of view.

To sign up, or for more information, please contact paigegrimball@stmichaelschurch.net

Our Wednesday discipleship class this fall will be The God Corner: Leading the Way on the Four Corners. This class arose from a preaching series developed by many local churches uniting together to form Mission: Charleston, with the aim to stand Biblically for Gospel Driven Reconciliation. The leaders of this group are all very orthodox Gospel-driven pastors. Our clergy took their curriculum and expanded it a bit, to create The God Corner. Each class will have a clergy member as teacher, with a reflection by a special guest.

A more vibrant marriage is possible when it’s built on a foundation of active faith.

Brought to you by FamilyLife, a leader in biblical marriage content for more than 40 years, Vertical Marriage small group will help your small group members learn the secret to a healthy marriage – if the vertical relationship with God is put first, the horizontal relationship between spouses will follow.

The video sessions are expertly paired with discussion prompts for the group and a special Couple’s Connection project designed to be completed onsite – so your busy group members can leave with NO HOMEWORK.
