Bring Your Bible

Don't forget to bring your Bible and a notebook!

"LIVE IN MY LOVE!" John 15:10

"Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" (Jn 21:17)These words of Christ are also spoken to each of us. Yet, the love that Christ speaks of is not the water-downed variety that our society embraces. Understanding the true meaning of love revealed in God's Word and His promises opens up an entirely new meaning for our lives.

Father Mitch Pacwa S.J. will offer this exciting weekend. His message is the life-changing love that Christ modeled for us when He stretched out His hands on the cross. Come and hear this compelling and riveting Bible teacher as he inspires your faith and your faithfulness!

PRAISE AND WORSHIP: STANDING IN THE GLORY
The Lord inhabits the praises of His people!

The spirit of worship at the Bible Institute is an important part of the nine days. Bill Richart, Robert Rogers, and Our Lady of Victory Men's Fellowship Group will be among those who will lead us in worship. Also, our very gifted Presentation Music Ministry provides worship and praise at our liturgies. Many gifted and dedicated people are a part of this ministry — including Paul Egan, Marianne Lander, Dave Willig, and John Egan. The Holy Spirit is also anointing younger members of Presentation Ministry for worship through music under the leadership of Elizabeth Egan. The Lord uses them in amazing ways to bring us into an awareness of His presence.
