Learn about yourself through Jesus with the support of others at CB’s Bible Study Club.
The Bible Study Club was started this year by Chris Tak (’17) and Adam Wong (’16) along with the help of Ms. Mary Spinelli ’99 this year. This club truly focuses on the Lasallian Core Principle of faith in the presence of God.
“I had a big shift in faith between sophomore and Junior year,” Chris said. “There needed to be a place in CB that people could have fellowship with other Christians.”
The club has started off with 12 students, but they hope to keep growing in size.
The Bible study club is about veritas which means truth and is broken down into three different sections of the club. The first part of veritas is the main purpose for the club is to focus on Jesus as he is the center of the bible.
The second part is on the fellowship, encouragement and training to walk with Christ. The walk with Christ is different with everyone because we are all on different levels of our relationship with Him. The fellowship of the club allows students to learn from other people — it’s hard to follow Christ if people are not supporting you.
“My personal desire is to have people to look to,” Chris says of his own personal experiences on the second part of the club.
The third part is the club’s teaching and discussion on the Bible. The Bible trains us to love others and gives the example of loving others because each of us is loved.
So why have a bible study club when there is religion class? Chris thinks veritas would take the religion class to the next level of our lives.
“The club applies to life in a more personal way,” Chris says.
The club meets every Thursday at all school lunch. The typical day in the club is started off with a Bible reading from the Gospel of John and then there is time for questions and a discussion between the club members.
“Eating, chilling and learning about God,” Chris says of the club activities.
The main goal of the club is if at least one person is helped or guided towards Jesus then the goal is accomplished. ”
High school is very hard for students to be witnesses of God and live out their faith,” the junior says. “But with the club students, have support in witnessing Christ.”
They hope to keep the club going with more members for many years to come and their look for the future of the Bible Study Club is bright. We hope this club will continue successfully in years to come because it creates a positive and holy influence for Christian Brother’s students.
