Irresistible: Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed on the World
Once upon a time there was a version of our faith that was practically . . . irresistible. But that was then. Today we preach, teach, write, and communicate as if nothing has changed. As if “The Bible says it,” still settles it. It’s time to hit pause on much of what we’re doing and consider the faith modeled by our first-century brothers and sisters who had no official Bible, no status, and humanly speaking, little chance of survival. What did they know that we don’t? What made their faith so compelling, so defensible, so irresistible? Buckle up . . . you’re about to find out. More importantly, Andy will invite us to embrace the version of faith that, against all odds, initiated a chain of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen. A version we must embrace if we are to be salt and light in an increasingly savorless and dark world.

Basic Bible Teachings
Basic Bible Teachings is specifically designed to teach the basics of the Christian Faith, as found in Luther’s Small Catechism, in easy-to-understand terms and in a highly visual format. This is a great opportunity for young adults or adults who are new to the faith and Lutherans looking for a refresher. We will walk through the five chapters of our study guide as we look at ourselves and our lives in the following framework: Living with Expectations, Living with Jesus as Savior, Living as God’s Children, Living the Christian Life, Living Forever with Jesus.
Second and Fourth Tuesdays of Month, Time TBD., in the Library
The next several studies will be topical studies. Watch this page for meeting times and topics to be discussed.

The Book of 1 Samuel
Things don’t look good for Israel. Military attacks threaten from without, and moral corruption destroys from within. But God, in His grace, will use three men to guide Israel through the crises into the next stage of His plan. Samuel, the prophet who directs Israel’s transition from judgeship to monarchy; Saul, the first king who epitomizes all that God doesn’t want in a leader; and David, the man after God’s own heart. These men remain perfect examples of godliness—and half-hearted commitment—for Christians today. Join us as we dig into this thought-provoking book of Scripture.
