Immigrants Among us
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Commission on Theology and Church Relations (CTCR) has prepared a Bible study titled Immigrants Among Us: A Lutheran Framework for Addressing Immigration Issues. The Bible study and discussion guide were prepared to help congregations and individuals in considering and discussing these important and challenging issues, features four parts
Immigrant Neighbors Past and Present;
God’s Law, Civil Law and the Neighbor;
Living in God’s Two Realms; and
Who Is My Neighbor?
One prominent evangelical scholar and immigration expert has said that “of all the church pronouncements and studies on U.S. immigration that have been published in the last two decades, the Missouri Synod’s report represents the most sophisticated and nuanced integration of biblical analysis with the challenges posed by contemporary immigration concerns.”
Join us on Sunday mornings during these summer months as we dig into this important and relevant topic.

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.
