Bible Study & Ministry Opportunities

SUNDAY


Gospel Readings of the Church Year

ZOOM ON-LINE BIBLE STUDY (On-going and in progress)

In this study we will discuss the Gospel reading for the day. The Gospel text carries the theme for the Sundays of the Church Year. As we gather, online via Zoom, we are ensconced in the safety of our own home, yet able to see fellow participates and engage in edifying discussion. A weekly discussion handout will be emailed each week the participants.


LEADER: Pastor Michael Roth

TIME: Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am

LEADER: Tom Bird

LOCATION: Church Fellowship Hall

TIME: Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am


MONDAY


Life Light Bible Study “Daniel” 

Small Group Study

The Gospel of the kingdom of God finds its most consistent Old Testament treatment in Daniel. This biblical book is much more than a combination of miraculous stories and fantastic visions; it presents the Gospel of the promised Messiah and his eternal kingdom. However, interpreting Daniel is no easy task. While the narratives about Daniel and his fellow Judeans appear simple (belying a rich theological complexity), the visions at the end of the book seem extraordinarily complicated. Through this book Christ preserves us in faith until he returns in glory to bring us into the fullness of eternal life and provides Gospel comfort to the church.

Son-Risers Bible Study (begins 9/15/2021)

Lutheran Spirituality – Community

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 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
