Education and Bible Study
Part of our mission at St. John’s is to nourish the faith of our church members, to support those seeking God or questioning their faith, to facilitate debate, and to educate those who wish to be better informed about Christianity. The Apostle Paul, in writing to encourage Timothy, his friend and disciple in ministry, said:
“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
(2 Timothy 2:2)
To this end, we offer you a number of programs, including:
- Weekly Bible Study classes, including those for women and Cantonese speakers
- The New Shofar, a weekly written reflection on being a follower of Christ in the modern world
While not a Bible Study, St John’s offers ESL / English as a Second Language classes and conversation to those who are native speakers of Mandarin or Cantonese. Led by Bowen Lau, these classes are taught remotely over Zoom. Please contact the church office if you or someone you know would benefit from this.
