Looking for connection and spiritual nourishment
Although this spring has been marked by a eucharistic and social fast, we still find ways to be nourished and to connect with one another.
Scripture is one of those ways.
This can be a season of rich spiritual growth in our eucharistic spirituality.
This summer St. Matthew's hosts a 5-session Bible Study by Little Rock Scripture Study on The Eucharist in Scripture.Register for either of two groups that will meet weekly via Microsoft Teams video and/or conference call - one on Sunday afternoons, and one on Monday evenings.

The Eucharist in Scripture explores the biblical theme of meals shared in faithful fellowship and in covenant relationship with God. Old Testament meals and promises provide a foundation for gospel meals with Jesus, culminating in the Last Supper as it is understood throughout the New Testament. Jesus' bread of life discourse and the early church's practice of "breaking bread" are also explored.
