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 a.m.  It runs during the same time as Sunday School, enabling families with children to participate.

    Large Group Bible Study (Fellowship Hall)
  • Not Just Creation Versus Evolution
    Taught by Dr. Kerry Kuehn (Wisconsin Lutheran College)
    February 21 - March 28, 2021

    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?

Additional Bible Study Opportunities
 
    Wednesday Men's Bible Study
  • Wednesdays at 6:30 a.m.
    Member-led Zoom Meetings


    Come join your brothers in Christ for fellowship and study.

    The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were each written for a different audience and provide slightly different perspectives on Jesus' life and ministry. Join us as we discuss how the different accounts can be harmonized into a consistent Gospel narrative and testimony to Jesus Christ.

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

    RIBS (Renewed and Inspired By our Savior) is a Bible study group for women who want to deepen their faith and strengthen their walk with their Savior. This year we will study The God of All Comfort by Donna Pyle to remind ourselves that God never leaves us unloved or uncared for - even in a pandemic.

    Paul's Letter to the Ephesians


    Our new year of Bible studies resumes January 7 with an in-depth look at the book of Ephesians.  The apostle Paul wrote this letter to the Christians in Ephesus while he was a prisoner in Rome. The first three chapters give us the gracious plan of salvation that God conceived and delivered as a free gift of his grace. The last three chapters outline the Christian's response to God's grace.
