Discover Your Inheritance as a Child of God - Ephesians


Ephesians was one of St. Paul’s most widely circulated writings because of its powerful, practical instructions for disciples of Christ. In fact, its six short chapters contain some of the most discussed passages in the New Testament. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance examines several themes that are of special concern to Christians in today’s culture and society—the nature of marriage, the purpose and role of the Church, the preeminence of grace in God’s plan, and the reality of spiritual warfare.

Presenter Jeff Cavins explores what Paul’s letter to the Ephesians tells us about the nature of the Church—as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion,
as a bride, and as an army. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance shows the treasures that await us as adopted sons and daughters in the family of God.


This study will take place on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, starting January 24th, for 8 sessions.  The sessions will be offered in the convent dining room. There is a $30 cost for the study guide.

Walking With Purpose
Walking with Purpose is a Women’s Bible Study that launched at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in the fall of 2019.   Using a small group format, Walking with Purpose’s goal is to help women deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, nurtured through the study of scripture and small group discussions.

Walking with Purpose developed several Bible studies specific for women using Biblical teachings consistent with Church doctrine, and utilizing the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an additional resource.  WWP studies have also received the imprimatur from Most Reverend William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore.

Walking with Purpose will be offered again this fall in three formats – Starting October 20 
  • Wednesday Evening Small Group In-Person Meetings at the Convent (7:00 PM to 8:30 PM)

Participants can sign up for Opening Your Heart (the beginning study) or Keeping in Balance (for those that completed Opening Your Heart) if this is their first Walking with Purpose bible study. For those that have completed Opening Your Heart and/or Keeping in Balance the Touching the Divine study is an option.  Each study is 22 weeks, but scheduled with many breaks. 

Opening Your Heart – is a 22-lesson Bible study that will take you on an exciting journey closer to the heart of God! Opening Your Heart is an incredibly effective guide to deep, lasting transformation of the heart and we encourage all participants new to Walking with Purpose to begin here, regardless of previous experience with Bible study

Keeping in Balance – is a 22-lesson journey throughout Scripture to discover the relevance of Old and New Testament wisdom for the daily challenges of a woman’s life.  Women will explore these biblical ideas for managing life’s pace and pressure while living with calm and steadiness.
