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)
  • One-Chapter Wonders
    Taught by Pastor Joel Leyrer

    November 1 - December 13, 2020 (no class November 29)

    Singers or musical groups who’ve recorded only one recognizable song in their career are sometimes referred to as “one-hit wonders.” In the Bible we might adjust and apply that phrase to those books of Scripture that consist of only a single chapter. There are five of them: Obadiah in the Old Testament, and Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude in the New Testament. While they may be short in length, like all of God’s Word, they are long in truth, and there is much we can learn from them. In this six-week Bible study we will examine what God has to teach us through each of these “one-chapter wonders.”

    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.

    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. Due to cold weather we cannot meet outside so we will go on hiatus until the weather warms in spring or there's a vaccine for coronavirus. Please watch for future announcments.

    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 (resuming September 17)

    Our new year of Bible studies resumes 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.
