BIBLE STUDIES @ SCC
  • Tuesday Men’s Breakfast Fellowship, 7.30 – 9.00 am: “Who Is This Man? The Unpredictable Impact of The Inescapable Jesus” with video lectures by Reverend John Ortberg, Senior Pastor of the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, California.
          In this five-session study, Ortberg shows how Jesus’ influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the fields of art, science, government, medicine, and education. And how his vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness and hope continues to inspire and challenge humanity today. 
  • Wednesday Young Adults, 7.30 – 9.00 pm: “Chocolate for Lent” (see info below*)
  • Thursday Women’s Study, 1.00 – 2.30 pm: Following the “Animate” series, this week: Community
  • Sundays (2nd and 4th of each month), 12.00 – 2.00 pm: “Chocolate for Lent”. Bring along something for the potluck lunch (see info below*).

*Info on “CHOCOLATE FOR LENT”
This is a study based around the film Chocolat starring Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Moline, Lena Olin, and Johnny Depp. 

The story is set in a religiously conservative French village, whose young priest is dominated by the town’s ultra-pious and reactionary town mayor. A young single mother (Binoche) opens up a chocolaterie at the beginning of the 1959 Lenten season and runs into conflict with the mayor’s ideas of what constitutes a truly Christian lifestyle. The film and discussion will explore the meaning of Lent, the nature of hospitality, the wisdom and renewal found in change, the love in accepting others, and the strength in becoming oneself through reflection and growth.

This week’s sessions (on Sunday, March 10th for all interested and on Wednesday, March 13th for our Young Adult group) will begin with watching the entire movie. Those who miss this first session may want to find an opportunity to see the film on-line or DVD. As we do not possess a copy of the DVD we will be streaming it via the internet.
