NUMBER OUR DAYS, Christian Time Management - SMALL GROUP STUDY

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12

 If you do not have time to go to this time management study, then you do not have time to not go to this study!

 

Work, Home, family, organizations, and even church, so heavily demand our time.  It should be no surprise that people feel overwhelmed and under stress.  They feel out of control as if sinking in quicksand. In addition, we all have the stress of the pandemic and a nation in turmoil. What we have in this study of Christian Time Management is a new fresh approach at how we look at time, ourselves, Christ, Scripture, stress and guilt which should change our whole way of thinking about time as applied to our lifetime.

 

LEADER: Tom Bird 

LOCATION: Church Fellowship Hall

TIME: Sundays, 9:15-10:15 a.m.


 

SOJOURNING WITH CHRIST, a Study on I Peter - SMALL GROUP STUDY

The Christian church is having less and less of a voice in the 21st century. Our position as “cultural leader” is being replaced by secular culture. Our beliefs are ignored, at best, and ridiculed, at worst. What now? In his First Epistle, St. Peter writes to a people in a situation not very different from our own. They were followers of Christ who desperately wanted to hang on to their Savior amidst persecution and suffering. St. Peter comforts them and gives them divine guidance on how to think, speak, and act in this world.


LEADER: Vicar Alvaro Witt Duarte

Life Light Bible Study “Prophecy” - SMALL GROUP STUDY

This study is part of the Life Light Bible study series of in-depth studies of Bible books. The goal of Life Light is that through a regular program of in-depth personal and group study of Scripture, more and more Christian adults may grow in their personal faith in Jesus Christ. Prophecy examines Old Testament promises and the fulfillment of those promises in the New Testament, the School of Prophets, the end of the world, and much more.

TUESDAY

 

Book Study on Martin Luther’s “Large Catechism”

“What does this mean?” Perhaps the most Lutheran of all questions. In The Small Catechism Luther teaches fundamental truths of our Christian faith. In his Large Catechism he dives a bit deeper. I invite you to follow Luther’s example. “I must still read and study the catechism daily, and yet I cannot master it as I wish, but must remain a child and pupil of the catechism—and I also do so gladly.” Let us do this together through the wit, wisdom, but above all, faith of Martin Luther. The version we’ll use may be found on Concordia Publishing House’s website. It comes with questions to aid us in our learning. Be sure to order the Samuel Janzow version.

Son-Risers Bible Study - Lutheran Spirituality – Prayer (Sharing our Faith) - SMALL GROUP STUDY

Spirituality is a common term today, but what does it mean? To find the right answer, Lutheran Spirituality directs adult Bible study participants to God's Word. Lutheran Spirituality explores the Bible, Luther's Small Catechism, and the Lutheran hymnal as integral resources for living out our faith in a spiritually confused--and confusing--world. In His Word, the Lord teaches His believers to pray. It is through prayer, and His grace, that we can approach His throne with our praise, confessions, fears...everything! This study encourages participants to rejoice in prayer as a great privilege, to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit as they pray, to approach God the Father in prayer with faith in Jesus as their Intercessor, to join with the congregation in praying for the world, and so much more.

Sessions include:

  • Our Secret Vocation
  • The Intercession of Jesus
  • The Gift of Prayer
  • Praying with Jesus
  • Complaining
  • Congregational Prayer

 


TIME: Wednesdays  6:45 – 7:45 a.m.
