Bible Study & Ministry Opportunities

MEMBERSHIP CLASS “Basic Bible Teachings”

This class 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. Young adults or adults who are new to the faith, or Lutherans looking for a refresher will appreciate this simple synopsis of the Lutheran belief system. Five chapters encourage readers to look at themselves and their 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

This class will prepare people who desire to become a member of Trinity. Our first class will begin sometime in January as the group is organized and gathered.

WEDNESDAY

Son-Risers Bible Study beginning January 5, 2022

Lutheran Spirituality – Community

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 sometimes confusing-world. Lutherans confess in the words of the Augsburg Confession (Article VII) that the church is the assembly of all believers among whom the Gospel is purely preached, and the holy Sacraments are administered according to the Gospel. The Lutheran conviction is that the church is where Jesus lives and gives His abundant gifts.

Session 1: Where Christ Is, There Is the Church

Session 2: The Lord's Giving--Our Receiving

Session 3: Fellowship as Partaking

Session 4: The Gift and Service of the Pastor

Session 5: We Are Not Alone

Session 6: Church, Family, and the World

TIME: Wednesdays 6:45 – 7:45 a.m.

LOCATION: Lighthouse Café

LEADER: Pastor Roth
