Adult Bible Studies
Sunday Morning Bible Study 10:00 a.m., in the fellowship hall and via Zoom – The Sermon on the Mount – The Sermon on the Mount contains some of the most familiar of Jesus teachings, not only among Christians, but among people in general. Sayings from the Sermon on the Mount are part of our everyday language—sayings such as, Do unto others . . ., Judge not . . ., and turn the other cheek. Yet this sermon may also be one of the least understood parts of our Lord’s teaching, and certainly the least obeyed. In this day and age, when many in the church are looking more and more like the society around us, it would do us good to study these words and teachings of Jesus. And that is what we will be doing in our Sunday morning Bible study hour.
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 – Bearing fruit for a lifetime begins with life-giving habits such as Bible reading, prayer, and evangelism. Bear Fruit for a Lifetime will help connect everything together by digging deeper into such practices as studying Scripture, mediating on and memorizing Scripture, and identifying personally with Jesus. Bear Fruit for a Lifetime 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.
