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)
  • Male and Female He Created Them
    Led by Pastor Eric Schroeder
    beginning January 5, 2020
    (no class January 26)


    Sex. Gender. Masculine and feminine. Male and female. Are we still allowed to use these terms in today’s world? How do we maintain a biblical stance without getting ourselves into trouble? Good questions, right? Our synod has recently produced a timely Bible study on this topic, and we will spend several weeks going back to the one true source of teaching. We may adjust our terminology, but we dare not adjust God’s Word. Time-permitting, we will also discuss a supplementary statement on human sexuality, personhood, and identity. Join us on Sunday mornings for this relevant topical study.

  • Bible Information Class
    Taught by the St. John’s Pastoral Staff
    Sundays at 9:15 a.m.


    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.

Additional Bible Study Opportunities
 
    Wednesday Men's Bible Study
  • Wednesdays at 6:30 AM
    Member-led
    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.
    Women's Bible Study - RIBS (Renewed & Inspired by our Savior)
  • Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m.
    Member-led
    Fellowship Hall (church, lower level)


    RIBS is a Bible study group led by women for women who want to deepen their faith and strengthen their walk with their Savior. In January 2020, we'll begin a study of the New Testament book of James. Fellowship begins at 8:00 a.m. and childcare is available.

    E-mail Monica Gnat with questions or for more information.

    Thursday Morning Bible Study
  • Thursdays at 10:30 a.m.
    led by Pastor Schroeder
    Fellowship Hall (church, lower level)
    The Prophet Zechariah (beginning January 9)


    Our new year of Bible studies begins with an in-depth look at what might be called “The Revelation of the Old Testament.”  Symbolic language, prophetic visions, and Messianic clues abound in a book of the Bible that might well confuse the novice reader.  Our study will allow us to slow down, let Scripture interpret Scripture, and see where Zechariah fits in preparing the way of the Lord.
