James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs, it is a book of wisdom, a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life. These teachings speak loudly to all those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith. This study offers “pearls for wise living” by applying the wisdom of James to the present day. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances. You will: Find an anchor to hold you steady through the storms of life. Learn how just a few small words can change your entire life for better or for worse. See how God\'s wisdom helps us face suffering and temptation. Learn the secret to finding joy in the midst of trials. Find value in suffering. Find reason to trust in God\'s providence over wealth or position or personal talent. Learn to recognize the source of discord and the way to peace. DVD series taught by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer.

“The Book of Exodus”
Monday evening will study Exodus and learn that God more than just seeking to free His people from the domination of Pharaoh, God desired to free His people from the far more sinister tyranny of sin, so they could live the authentic freedom that belongs to children of God. Because of this, the Exodus story is not just Israel’s story, it is our story as well, it tells us who God is and what He calls us to be.
In this Bible study on Tuesday mornings, we examine the readings for next Sunday’s Mass. This permits a better understanding of Scripture. Various commentaries can provide an in-depth meaning of Sunday’s readings. For more information call Steve Ewbank at 281.980.5575.

RE Center Large Gathering Room
Join us in an 11 week DVD study of “Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come.” Revelation is intended to reveal the divine mysteries to us. We see how our faith, our liturgy, and our worship are in participation in the liturgy of heaven. This is a group of men, of all ages, that come together to foster an environment where men can speak to each other about spiritual and practical ideas, allowing men to open up about concerns and struggles in a secure and confidential way.
