New Bible Study: Survey of Romans

Beginning Sunday, April 11
Join us as Pastor Bitter works through a big-picture treatment of Paul’s letter to the Romans by focusing on major themes and the overarching flow of thought. Discussions will be drawn more from big-picture concepts than from individual verses. Participants will come away with a sense for the overall structure of the letter and an appreciation for the context in which many favorite Bible passages reside. Click here for class materials and video.

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Beginning Sunday, February 21
Modern debates between advocates of atheistic evolution and divine creation are important for Christians to understand. But the relationship between science and religion is far broader and more interesting than just these particular modern debates. In this Bible study, we will explore some of the ways in which science and religion have interacted throughout history. In particular, we will consider questions such as these: Why was the church so interested in astronomy? What is the difference between astronomy and astrology, or between alchemy and chemistry? Did the Lutheran reformers teach science at Wittenberg? Must everything in nature have a cause? And, if everything has a cause, then what caused God? Please join us in-person or online for this study led by Dr. Kerry Kuehn of Wisconsin Lutheran College. Click here for class materials, and click here to register for in-person attendance.

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Beginning January 10
The most difficult question Christians often face in life is this: If God is all-powerful, and if he loves us, why must we suffer? In the book of Job, God invites us to go with Job through his suffering and eavesdrop on the lessons he learned. Please join us in-person or online for this study led by Rev. Dr. Mark Braun of Wisconsin Lutheran College. Click here for class materials, and click here to register for in-person attendance.

By Scripture Alone

Since beginning By Scripture Alone in 2017, we've read through the entire Bible chronologically, have spent a year in the New Testament, and are working through the basic truths of the Lutheran faith as taught and explained in Martin Luther's Small Catechism. Next year, we're going back to reading through the entire Bible - but in a slightly different way. In 2021, By Scripture Alone will feature three daily readings: one from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament, and one from Psalms or another book of Wisdom Literature. Click here for more information and a reading schedule.

Three Good Things That Will Happen in November

1. We will begin a new Bible study on Sunday, November 1. Taught by Pastor Leyrer, this six-week study will focus on "One-Chapter Wonders": books of the Bible that are short in length (only one chapter each) but long in truthClick here for class materials and video.

2. We will begin a new church year on Sunday, November 29. As we transition from the season of End Times (October 24 - November 22) to the season of Advent, may we echo the church's centuries-old refrain: Come, Lord Jesus, come.

 

 


3. Our school children will begin preparing for their Christmas service. The service will be pre-recorded and will look different this year. But nothing can change the timeless truths shared by our students in word and song: a Savior has been born, he is Christ the Lord!

"One-Chapter Wonders"

Beginning Sunday, November 1
Singers or musical groups who’ve recorded only one recognizable song in their career are sometimes referred to as “one-hit wonders.” In the Bible we might adjust and apply that phrase to those books of Scripture that consist of only a single chapter. There are five of them: Obadiah in the Old Testament, and Philemon, 2nd John, 3rd John, and Jude in the New Testament. While they may be short in length, like all of God’s Word, they are long in truth, and there is much we can learn from them. In this six-week Bible study we will examine what God has to teach us through each of these “one-chapter wonders.”
