Bible 101

An introduction to the Bible


Thursday evenings at St. Philip’s Church,


This course is an overview of the whole Bible. Participants will learn what is in the Bible, how the Bible is put together, and how Episcopalians generally interpret the Bible. The class will meet once a month for two hours and will be led by Father Eric. You do not need any prior knowledge or experience of the Bible, but even those who are pretty advanced will find new insights and information. Sign up online below.
