Beginning January 7th, 2020 we will begin an 8 week study of Paul's letter to the Ephesians.
St. Paul visited Ephesus with Priscilla and Aguila on his second missionary journey and returned to live in Ephesus on the Aegean Sea during his third missionary journey. He spent a total of three years there.
Ephesus is where St. John took the Blessed Virgin Mary to live after Christ’s crucifixion. It was from there that Mary was assumed into heaven. On the cover of our study book, there is a picture of the house in which Mary lived.
The Letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts we as Christians are given in the Church. It is most noted for its description of Christ and the Church. It shows the great inheritance that awaits us as adopted sons and daughters in the family of God, and it reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our lives.
Paul outlines the five-fold ministry – apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. He calls us to live as children of the light, and finally in the letter’s most famous passage, Paul compares the relationship of Christ and the Church to the marriage relationship of husband and wife.
We are excited to invite you to join us for this study. Books will be available on the first day of class. Classes are held on Tuesday mornings (9-11 am) and evenings (6:45-8:45 pm). Babysitting is provided upon request for children 1 year and older.
