Join Us in Reading the Bible

The Saint Lucas family is reading through the Psalms twice in 2020.  Please join in! 

We are focusing on one specific Psalm per month. We are encouraged to spend extra time reading, studying, thinking about, and meditating on this one Psalm. At the end of the year, we will know 12 Psalms really well. New study tips and resources are provided every week. 

In addition, we are reading one Psalm per day, six days per week. The reading schedule is listed below and sent in a weekly email on Monday mornings. (Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., if you want your email added to the list.) 

Psalm Journals are available from the church office for $5. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 414-483-9122)


 

 

November Psalm of the Month

Simply put, Psalm 130 is a call for help, a cry for forgiveness, and it is all about waiting for the Lord in hope. Read the Psalm and be refreshed in God’s promise of unconditional, unfailing love and full redemption. 

 

Nov. 1-7, 2020

Memorize verses 1-2.

 

Surely God hears our prayers even without our asking. Why do you think the Psalmist speaks to God in this way? What benefits might we receive by asking God to listen to us?

Nov. 15-21, 2020

Memorize verses 5-6.

 

What does it mean to wait for the Lord? Have you experienced a time in your life of waiting for the Lord? What did you do while you were waiting?

 

What does it mean to put your hope in His Word?

 

What are some other scripture passages that testify to God’s love and faithfulness?
