Bible Studies

Sunday Bible Class

This is one of the most popular opportunities for members to “grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior." All members are encouraged to attend.

Sunday Bible class is conveniently scheduled between the Sunday morning worship services, from 9:15 – 10:15 AM.  It runs during the same time as Sunday School, enabling families with children to participate.

    Large Group Bible Study (Fellowship Hall)
  • Christian Apologetics
    Led by Dr. Michael Berg (Wisconsin Lutheran College)

    September 15-29, 2019


    Christian Apologetics can be described as “defending the faith using reason.” The biblical mandate for apologetics comes from 1 Peter 3:15, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason (apologia) for the hope that you have.” Yet there is more to the story. Apologetics is a ministry of caring: we care about the doubts of skeptics and believers alike. While Christians cannot produce faith in dead hearts, they can knock down faulty arguments against the Christian message and make a positive argument for the Christian faith. The apologetic task is to make the case for the Christian claim and let the Spirit do the work of faith by presenting the gospel to the skeptic.

    We are studying the book of Genesis.  This first book of the Bible gives us information about the origin of the universe and the human race.  It also records the tragic details of how sin entered this perfect world and its ugly consequences.  Join us as we discuss this important “book of beginnings” and discover God at work to redeem us with His message of law and gospel.

    Thursday Morning Bible Study
  • Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. beginning September 12
    led by Pastor Schroeder
    Fellowship Hall (church, lower level)


    Immanuel. Messiah and Christ. Lord and King. We know those names refer to Jesus, but what exactly does each name especially emphasize about his place in our lives? This study will remind us of what we already know and reinforce the deeply relevant truths contained in the names Scripture attaches to our Savior. Video clips will take us to the places where Jesus walked and help provide a context for our discussion. All are welcome!
