OLGC provides programs, workshops, and retreats that strive to support that touch of God, moving us from being mere "knowing" individuals to being "loving" people through understanding and experiencing the spiritual side of our lives. We will provide maps and fuel for that journey, a variety of opportunities for adults to develop their faith.

Come and Explore Credo!
Beginning on September 10th, the Men’s Monday night group will begin a program designed as a Catholic adult education initiative called “Credo.”
What is Credo? The program summarizes the basic tenants of our Catholic faith and is divided into four parts: Faith and Doctrine, Sacramental Life and Practice, the Christian Moral Life, and Pillars of Catholic Living.
There is an accompanying guide book for the study. Credo gives special emphasis to answering objections commonly posed to the Catholic faith today. It also provides encouragement for living out the Catholic faith in an increasingly secular society. Each chapter includes resources for integrating the Catholic faith into one’s daily life (traditional Catholic prayers, suggested Scripture readings, life-application questions, etc.).
Additionally, various forms of prayer are discussed to encourage those participating in this program to strengthen their relationship with God as they learn more about Him.
Dates: Mondays, starting September 10th
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Location: School Library
Come and explore St. Paul's Letters from Prison! This study will encounter First Thessalonians, Philippians, Second Thessalonians, Colossians, and Ephesians. To sign up or for more information, please contact Mike Plett.

We are trying to discern the best way to move forward with the Tuesday Scripture Study. At this point in time, we are in great need for facilitators to keep it running.
There will be a Monday morning Little Rock Scripture Study from 10:00 am to 11:30 am, which will cover St. Paul’s Letters from Prison (1st Thessalonians, Philippians, 2nd Thessalonians, Colossians, and Ephesians), and meet throughout the year. This begins September 10th and will be led by Mike Plett.
There will also be a Men’s Faith and Scripture Study that will meet on Monday evenings from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. Carlos Berrios and Brian Davenport will be leading the Men’s Faith And Scripture Study, which will explore Credo.
If you could complete this short survey to let us know of your interest in a Tuesday Scripture Study, we would greatly appreciate it! Many Thanks!
