The Women’s Catholic Scripture Study of San Mateo County invites you to join us for our 2019-20 study

The Gospel According to John:
An Encounter with Grace and truth.

This 25-lesson Catholic Bible study from Turning to God’s Word focuses on grace and truth brought together in Jesus Christ as described by the Evangelist John. The biblical text emphasizes the Institution of the sacraments of the Church as the means by which Christians are purified and made holy.

We meet at St. Mark Catholic Church, Belmont on Thursdays, 09/12/19-05/07/20, (with holiday breaks), class times are 9:45AM-12 Noon. For a sample lesson of this Bible study, go to: www.TurningtoGodsWord.com and click on “TtGW”, click on “New Testament” and then scroll to “Gospel According to John” and click.

Participants prepare by reading the Bible passages and the lesson pages. (Writing responses to the questions is optional.)
