Bible Study

It is the understanding of the congregation and staff team at Rosedale United that the Scriptures (The Old and New Testaments of the Bible) are a foundational text for our life as a community of faith.  They are not the only texts, and we will often look to other literature and sources of wisdom, but these texts are our starting point.


Our principal opportunities for study of the Bible are Sunday morning readings and sermons, and occasional evening study sessions.


Most often our readings are drawn from the Lectionary, an ecumenical, three-year cycle of weekly readings.  Occasionally the preacher for that week will select different readings.


If you have specific questions and would like a conversation with one of our clergy, always pleased to respond, please contact Kristin Philipson.
