Adult Bible Study

Paul's Pastoral Epistles

Holy Cross’ Adult Bible Class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:15. In October we began a series on Paul’s pastoral epistles, 1-2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon, published by Living Way Bible Study.


Each week we look at a chapter from one of these letters and, after considering it in context, see what wisdom and insight it has for us today, especially as it points us to Christ and encourages us in our faith. The study follows a four-step process:

  1. PERSONAL – (After Week 1) Personal Application (P.A) questions answered at home.
  2. SMALL GROUPS – (After Week 1) In small groups we share answers to the P.A. questions.
  3. THE MESSAGE – As a large group, we learn additional background and insight on the day’s text.
  4. THE NARRATIVE – The study author’s comments or narrative, along with the P.A. questions for the next lesson, are given out at the end of the class.

Our time begins with adults and children in the sanctuary, and then we split up into groups by age.
