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)
  • Knowing Jesus Better
    Taught by Pastor Joel Leyrer
    January 8 - February 19, 2023
    (replaced by the State of the Parish on January 29)

    His is indeed “the greatest story ever told.” This six-week Bible study will focus on the life of Christ up until Holy Week using a topical rather than chronological approach.  We will seek to know Jesus better through an examination of the land that he lived in, the claims he made about himself, the miracles he performed, the people that surrounded him, and the great events that define the Christian faith—all of which will renew and deepen our appreciation for the One who loves us with an everlasting love.

    Bible Information Class (St. Matthew's Room)
  • 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 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.
    Women's Bible Study - RIBS (Renewed & Inspired by our Savior)
  • Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m.
    Beginning Wednesday, January 11 

    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. 

    Did you know that each piece of armor exposes the typical ways we are tempted? Armor is for one thing, protection. It is called the armor of God because it is everything God is and provides for the believer. The One who wants to protect us is our Heavenly Father. Each piece God graciously provides reveals the nature and methods of attack. God is showing us the face of the enemy reflected in the pieces of His armor! 

    This spring we will learn how to suit up, fight temptation, and stand strong in our spiritual lives by studying Suit Up! Putting on the Full Armor of God: A Revealing Look at God's Armor by Michael Lantz. We invite you to pick up a copy of the book and join us on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. in the church Fellowship Hall. Not sure if you want to commit to the group? Come check us out before you decide. Not sure if you can make it to every class? Come when you can – we don’t take attendance! Can’t join us right away? New members are welcome any time!

    The Prophet Isaiah
    Isaiah's book of prophecy is sometimes referred to as the gospel of the Old Testament.  In our Thursday morning class, we will take our time as we make our way through the book, hear what God revealed through this major prophet, and apply these truths to our lives as God's people today.  Coffee/tea will be provided; come and bring a friend!
