Most Christians already know that they should be telling their friends about Jesus. But they have been poorly equipped with methods that are no longer effective in today’s post-Christian world. In a post-Christian, post-churched, post-reached world we need new methods to communicate the timeless message of the gospel in culturally relevant ways. Adding to what we learned in our study of Tactics, we will continue to look at ways to share the Gospel more effectively in today’s culture. Evangelism in a Skeptical World will provide with more tools for our “tool belt.” These are methods that really work – with university students, urban workers, and professionals – getting past the defensive posture that people have toward Christianity so they can seriously consider the claims of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Wednesday Evenings, 6:00 p.m., Pastor Todd’s Office, Beginning January 8

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 framework below:

  • Living with Expectations

  • Living with Jesus as Savior

  • Living as God’s Child

  • Living the Christian Life

  • Living Forever with Jesus

 

 

Women’s Bible Study – Tuesday Evenings, 6:30-8:00 p.m. – Beginning in January (meets every two weeks)

This study will take a deeper dive into the Fruit of the Spirit. Following the sermon series on Sunday morning we will take a closer look at love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control, what Scripture tells us about each one and what it means to bear the fruit of the Spirit in our lives.

 

 

 

 


2nd and 4th Thursdays of Month, 10:00 a.m., in the Library, beginning January 9Na.

The Book of 2 Samuel

2 Samuel presents the reign of King David, a man after God’s own heart. Under David’s rule, the nation of Israel prospered, defeating her enemies and extending her boarders. We read of David’s rule in all its glory and success. But the book also presents the darker side of David’s reign as it tells of his weaknesses and failures. David repents of his sin and receives God’s forgiveness, but there are also consequences for his actions. We have much to learn from both David’s triumphs, as well as his failures. Join us as we explore what the life of David can teach us about our own walk with the Lord.

 

 

 

Navigators 2:7 – A Course in Personal Discipleship to Strengthen Your Walk with God – Monday Evenings, 6:30 p.m., Beginning September 16

Dig into Scripture to deepen your relationships with God and others. Watch the seeds of prayer and evangelism begin to take root in you. You’ll nurture these practices in your daily life as you work through the Bible studies and training materials in Deepening Your Roots in God’s Family. Combined with the skills you learned in book one of The 2:7 Series, you’ll see prayer and evangelism begin to bear fruit for you and the relationships in your life.

If you are interested in taking a deeper dive into discipleship and your walk with Jesus, this may be a great option for you. This course will require a significant commitment. The course is divided into three sections, with each section being 11 weeks long. So, we will meet 33 times over the course a year. We will meet on Monday evenings , January 27, with the exception of the first Monday of the month (this is reserved for Evangelism and Elders meetings). We will also take some time off during holidays. To start, we will plan on beginning at 6:30 p.m. and concluding by 8:30 p.m. There will be homework to be done in between sessions, including written work and memory work. We will then come together for group learning and sharing.

If you are interested in a deep dive into discipleship then please contact Pastor Todd as soon as possible.
