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)
  • Crossing Boundaries
    Led by Pastor Phil Merten (Institutional Ministries)

    June 30 & July 14, 2019

    When Jesus told his followers to “Make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), that included people from all economic classes, parts of town, education levels, and religious backgrounds. But we’re going to have trouble with this command of Jesus if we don’t look beyond our comfort zone. Jesus crosses all boundaries, and he calls us to cross boundaries along with him to meet the people he loves. Join us for Bible study at 9:15 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall as Pastor Phil Merten from Institutional Ministries helps us see how we can follow Jesus’ command and cross boundaries.

    Bible Information Class (St. Matthew's Room)
  • Taught by St. John’s Pastoral Staff

    Invite your friends and neighbors! Come and review the basics of Christianity!  This course provides a general overview of the Bible, touches upon every major Christian doctrine, and supplies a solid understanding of what we confess and believe as a confessional Lutheran Church.  Since it provides the foundation for a deeper relationship with God, we encourage both members and non-members to attend. Please note there will also be some week-night evening classes.

Additional Bible Study Opportunities
    Wednesday Men's Bible Study
  • Wednesdays at 6:30 AM
    The City Market (8700 W Watertown Plank Rd #2)

    Come join your brothers in Christ for fellowship, food and study.

    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.

    Newcomers are always welcome.  Please email Jon Johnson with questions.
