Adult Formation

Bible/Book Studies

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path”
– Psalm 119:105

Bible studies look to foster not only the “head-knowledge” of the Bible, but the very intimate “heart-knowledge” that comes from encountering God in His Word, His love letter to us.

Ministry at SMP this Fall: This fall (Oct. – Dec.) Bible studies will be offered to adults in two formats: Small group, in-person studies offered onsite at Saint Michael Parish, and small group studies offered entirely online via Zoom.

Small Groups

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20

Small Groups meet in homes or at the parish each week to:

  • Break open the Sunday Scripture with Lectio Divina
  • Gain wisdom and hear a reflection from Fr. Jim, Fr. Lou and fellow parishioners
  • Share prayer, insights and God sightings in a confidential setting
  • Meet other parishioners and share faith/life experiences
  • Deepen your own faith/life connection in a supportive environment

Ministry at SMP this Fall: The Advent Small Groups will begin the week of November 9 and finish on December 20. We are always looking for new facilitators! Training and materials are provided. New facilitator registration opens on October 3. Registration for new Small Group members for Advent opens on October 17. Some small groups continue to meet year-round and are open to new members joining.
