ADULT BIBLE STUDY –  ‘Paul’s Letter To Titus’  Begins September 15th

September 15, Tom Bird will begin an in depth study of  Paul’s Letter to Titus. The letter to Titus is a little known pastoral letter in the New Testament; but it is a treasure trove of rich teachings to discover.  Martin Luther says of Titus:  “This is a short epistle, but a model of Christian doctrine, in which is comprehended in a meaningful way all that is necessary for a Christian to know and to live.”   Our goal is 1) to picture the actual situation and issues of the church on the Island of Crete where Titus served as pastor; 2)  to understand the inspired teaching of the Apostle Paul relating to the situation and issues; and 3)  to apply those very teachings to our individual spiritual development and to our congregation as a whole in our day in age.

Again Luther says of the letter to Titus;  “Paul teaches various estates-the older, the younger, wives, husbands, masters, slaves-how they are to act, as those whom Christ, by his death, has won for his own.”

All are welcome to the class held in the Fellowship Hall.  Coffee in one hand, Bible in the other, you are ready to get started?

SON-RISERS BIBLE STUDY – ‘Vocation: God Serves through Us’  Begins September  11th

Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions proclaim and teach the true meaning of vocation. As children of God, we not only have a place in God’s heavenly kingdom, but we also have been given a new status here in God’s earthly kingdom. How do we balance this dichotomy?

Christians are faced with many questions about living a Christian life in a secular world: How can I live a Christian life in a secular workplace? Is my job, which is not directly affiliated with the Church, God-pleasing? How can I balance my calling as a Christian with my calling as a citizen of this community?

This study will examine these questions from a distinctly Lutheran perspective. The richness of the Gospel will be extolled as we explore this doctrine of vocation—a Christian’s service to others and their service to us in this world.


LEADER:     Pastor Michael Roth

LOCATION: Lighthouse Café, Ministry Center

TIME:            6:45-7:45 a.m.
