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 Estate Planning Seminar
    April 15
    Led by WELS Christian Giving Counselor
     Rick Kneser


    Covered topics will include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and more. Proper planning gives adults of all ages peace of mind, minimizes taxes and provides for loved ones—sometimes through an income for life for you or your heirs, and can also support the Lord’s work. Free follow-up consultations are available.

    Worship While You Work
    April 22 - May 20
    Led by Pastor Eric Schroeder


    “What do you do?” When people ask you this question, they are usually talking about work. How you answer says a lot about you; where you spend the majority of your time, what provides for your livelihood, and what you might be especially good at. Your work and how you view it, however, doesn't just relate to your time and income. It has much to do with your Christian faith and life. We will explore the origins of work, the challenges of work and the opportunities that work offers, among other aspects. We will also be reminded not to worship work, but to worship while we work. All are invited, whether employers, employees, homemakers, students, or retirees.

    Small Group Bible Study (School Lecture Room)
  • Ezekiel
    April 22 - May 13
    Led by Rev. Dr. Paul Lehninger


    Why did visions of wheels within wheels, dry bones made alive, and a temple that could never be built give God's people comfort and encouragement while they were captives in Babylonia? Ezekiel has the answer, and that answer is still relevant for God's people today. 
    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.

    Thursday Morning Bible Study
  • The Gospel According to St. Mark
    Thursdays at 10:30 AM 
    led by Pastor Schroeder

    Fellowship Hall (church, lower level)

    Mark's gospel account is the shortest of the four, but that doesn't mean it is any less valuable than the other three.  In this study we will note the efficient style with which Mark was inspired to capture the life and ministry of Jesus.  Join us as we hear Jesus teach on themes of discipleship, the necessity of the cross, and the Messianic "secret." 

    Coffee/tea and light snacks are provided, and all are invited to attend.

     

    Christ-Empowered Dads
  • Thursdays at 6:30 PM (second Thursday of each month)
    Member-led
    Fellowship Hall


    Christian fathers and father-figures have a double responsibility: to grow in their own faith and to lead their kids to grow spiritually as well. Can you and your kids both confidently fulfill what is mentioned in 1 Peter 3:15 “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” Is being in God’s Word a priority? Do your kids know that and see it in your actions? Are you showing them the motivation to live a life in Christ?

    In this monthly men’s group, we’ll explore how to live the life God wants us to live as fathers or fatherly-figures with 2 Timothy 3:16 in mind: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” Join us from 6:30 – 8:30 PM on the second Thursday of each month. For details, please email Pastor Schroeder.
