By Scripture Alone Discussion Forum

Thursday, January 9 – Please join us for one more discussion forum before we close the book on the New Testament! We’ll meet from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to answer your questions and wrap up a perfectly tied together and supremely bookended story: a story that begins in one perfect garden and ends in another. Questions or topics for consideration can be submitted in advance to Pastor Eric Schroeder at eric.schroeder@sjtosa.org. In addition to the questions you submit, we’ll preview Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, the focus of By Scripture Alone in 2020. Catechisms can be purchased from Pastor Schroeder for $20, and a 2020 reading schedule is available at www.sjtosa.org/BSA.

End Times Bible Study

Beginning Sunday, November 3
Every Sunday we confess our belief that Jesus “will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end”. But when? What exactly are the signs that precede the end? Have they been fulfilled? What about the Antichrist? What is the Rapture? And the Millennial kingdom? In this Bible study we will sort through the confusion and various interpretations that surround the “end times” as we let Scripture alone provide the last word. Click here for class materials and video.

By Scripture Alone Discussion Forum

Thursday, October 3
We’re continuing to learn from the apostle Paul in our “By Scripture Alone” readings. As the most prolific New Testament writer (penning nearly half the books), Paul focuses on both spiritual teachings and practical applications in his epistles. Please join us from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to discuss what we've read so far. Questions or topics for consideration can be submitted in advance to Pastor Eric Schroeder. In addition to the questions you submit, we'll look ahead to the remainder of the New Testament and discuss the plans for By Scripture Alone in 2020.
