Adult Bible Studies

Sunday School Hour Bible Studies (9:40-10:40 a.m.)

  • Foundations

    (New member class/Adult Information class)

    Begins Sunday, January 5, 2020

    Pastor Tom facilitates this study in Room 12. The sessions examine the teachings of the Scriptures and the assurance of God’s forgiveness, presence and eternal life that are ours in Christ Jesus. This may be one of the last times that Pastor Tom will be leading this class. Don’t miss this opportunity to invite and bring family and friends to his sessions. 

  • Apologetics

    A Concordia Publishing House Faith Course hosted by Jan Lohmeyer. Mike Kusner facilitates this study in Room 2/3. As a Christian, you’re bombarded with questions about whether or not the Bible is true:

    • Can we prove God exists?
    • Hasn’t evolution been proven factual?
    • Was there really a worldwide flood?
    • If God is love, why do bad things happen?

    Apologetics helps you defend biblical truth and, therefore, also your faith. Join Jan Lohmeyer in a journey to fully understand your faith. Your big questions will be answered with biblical, historical, and scientific proof, so you can defend the hope that is in you.

  • Joining Jesus on His Mission

    Pastor Don facilitates this study in the Family Life Center. Jesus not only promises to be with us. He also promises to be out in the world ahead of us, doing His work, preparing people for being in contact with us! These sessions include video materials by Rev. Greg Finke, and help prepare us to joyfully meet, visit and encourage people with the Good News as we go about our daily activities.

    Wednesday Bible Studies


    • altogether beautiful

      Wednesdays 9:30 A.M.

       This video-based Women’s study is continuing from the spring. This is a study of the Song of Songs that explores what it means to be loved fiercely and called beautiful by the God of the universe. Whether married or single, young or old, women will find truth and comfort in the Song of Songs because this song, ultimately, is about the fierce love God has for them, whom He declares altogether beautiful. This study is facilitated by Deanna Lynch.


       

       


    • The Patriarchs

      Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 p.m. in room 2/3

      Encountering the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - Bible study by Beth Moore. Discover God's pursuit of a relationship with man, and marvel as His plan to bless all people unfolds. Full of twists and turns, ruin and redemption, revelation and mystery this Bible study keeps participants captivated by the God who stars in it! Explore concepts such as blessing, covenant, and promise, and the bearing each has on a New Testament believer’s life today. We will also study the Hebrew names of God introduced on the early pages of Scripture. The structure of the class this year will be a little different. The first class will be the video introduction, the second and third class will be video lessons, the fourth class will be discussion, and the fifth class will be a fellowship meal. This basic pattern will repeat for the rest of the course.

       

    • The gospel of mark

      Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 p.m.

      The Gospel in Action. Chapters 9—12. Pastor Don facilitates these sessions in Pastor Tom’s study. In these chapters we walk along side of Jesus as He heads to Jerusalem to fulfill the Mission to be our Savior. St. Mark gives us the opportunity to be “eye-witnesses” of the events and teachings of Jesus.

       

    • Sticky Faith Parents

      Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 p.m.

      Nearly every Christian parent in America would give anything to find a viable resource for developing within their kids a deep, dynamic faith that "sticks" long term. Sticky Faith delivers. Research shows that almost half of graduating high school seniors struggle deeply with their faith. Recognizing the ramifications of that statistic, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) conducted the “College Transition Project” in an effort to identify the relationships and best practices that can set young people on a trajectory of lifelong faith and service. Based on FYI findings, this easy-to-read guide presents both a compelling rationale and a powerful strategy to show parents how to actively encourage their children’s spiritual growth so that it will stick to them into adulthood and empower them to develop a living, lasting faith. Written by authors known for the integrity of their research and the intensity of their passion for young people, Sticky Faith is geared to spark a movement that empowers adults to develop robust and long-term faith in kids of all ages.

    • Men's Bible Study Fellowship

On class night, you will join other men in a small-group discussion of the lesson and learn from a teaching leader how the truths of Scripture can be applied to daily life. You will leave class with comprehensive lesson notes, which teach further on the passage you studied, and lesson questions for the following week.

    • Bible Journaling

      This program will resume in January 2020

       

      What is the most important gift you can give your children or grandchildren? While we can not give them the gift of faith, we can provide the means by which the Holy Spirit can work in their hearts.

       

      When the children of Israel crossed into the promised land, God commanded them to pick up twelve stones to build a memorial. These stones were to remind them of what He had done to free them from slavery in Egypt and provide for them along the way. Things like manna and quail, turning bitter water into sweet water, protection from poisonous snakes all things they needed to live and be saved.

       

      So how, when, and where in your life has God placed a stone? Something that was an obstacle that now serves as a remembrance of how He saw you through that time? Is it something you could share with someone you love that will act as a support for what they may go though?

      The last two Mondays of the month we will be working on a legacy Bible project. This is something that you can give to a child who has drifted from God, a person new in their faith, someone just confirmed in their faith or just do it for yourself.

       

      The first two Mondays we will be studying a passage, reflecting on it and learning a new technique to use in our Bible or journal. Join us for devotions, reflection, worship and fun. Classes begin Monday Sept. 9 from 6:30-8:30.
