Sunday Morning Bible Study, beginning Sunday, September 13, 10:00 a.m., in the fellowship hall and via Zoom – Jesus with Dirty Feet This semester’s Sunday morning study will take us into this thought-provoking book as we take a closer look at Jesus, unencumbered by the stereotypes and cliches that have accumulated through the centuries. Most folks think of Jesus as the man who started Christianity. But it turns out he wasn’t just a man, and he didn’t just start Christianity. Most folks think of Jesus as an other-worldly religious leader, a great moral teacher, or maybe they don’t think of him at all. But he had dirty feet, partied, cooked breakfast and got himself killed. What does all of this mean for us as we strive to follow Him in genuine discipleship? We’ll dig into that together. Books will be available in the bins outside the main entrance to church the week of September 6.
Thursday Morning Bible Study, beginning Thursday, September 10, 10:00 a.m., in the fellowship hall and via Zoom – Luther’s Large Catechism This study will meet on the second and fourth Thursday’s of each month. Luther designed both the Small and Large Catechisms to help Christians grow in the knowledge of God and the Gospel. He stated, “After you have taught them this short catechism take up the Large Catechism, and impart to them a fuller and richer knowledge.” Well that is exactly what we are going to do. Copies of the Large Catechism will also be available in the bins outside the main entrance to church the week of September 6.
A men’s prayer and Bible study is meeting on Friday mornings at 7:00 a.m. The Bible study is focused on topical themes. Organizers are calling it an “old codgers” fellowship, but “younger” men are welcome too. Call the church office for location information.
Navigators 2:7 – A Course in Personal Discipleship to Strengthen Your Walk with God, beginning Monday evening, September 14, in the fellowship hall and via Zoom – When a tree takes root, it’s not long before the action is mirrored above ground. Green , healthy leaves appear. Even the trunk grows sturdier, more storm-resistant. Because of the roots, the tree becomes firm and fruitful. So it is with you. The deeper you root your life in Christ, the stronger you’ll become. Deepening Your Roots in God’s Family is a continuation of the deeper dive into discipleship started with a small group last year. This course requires a significant commitment. The course is divided into three sections, with each section being 11 weeks long. There is homework to be done in between sessions, including written work and memory work. We then come together for group learning and sharing. If you have not been a part of this study, but want to know more, please contact Pastor Todd.
