All-Parish Study

The Real Jesus – A Study Through the Book of Revelation
Groups start after Easter

Follow with a Home Group, Zoom Group, or Church Group
Book is available in The Bookstore and free online through the Teaching Center

This six-week study walks us through the book of Revelation – the last book of the Bible, and one that was written to give us hope. Written by SJD's own beloved lay faculty leader Meg Rice, this study reveals the power, majesty, and authority of Jesus Christ. Our world may seem out of control, but Jesus is sovereign. The book of Revelation is full of metaphors that can be confusing and are often misunderstood. Come join Meg as she leads us through this challenging book, one that is so suited for our challenging times.

The Art of Marriage
Available for self-study through the SJD Teaching Center
God can turn any marriage into a masterpiece. Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form — challenging to master but definitely worth the effort.
