Join us to study the Word of God.
Sunday Morning Bible Class
Let’s face it, we all love history. However, history is learned on so many levels – there’s the history of a nation; the history of a movement; the history of your family; the history of what you did or didn’t do yesterday. The Church also has a history. Beginning this month we will use Sunday Morning’s to look at Church history. We will first look at the history of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS).
The formation and growth of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in the United States is examined in this video resource. It features expert commentary, instructive graphics, and details the Christ-centered mission-and potential-of the LCMS
From immigrant communities of German Christians to a main-line denomination of more than 6,000 congregations, We the Church: The Priesthood of All Believers focuses on the origin and development of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and how the early LCMS met the outreach challenges of its new “American” setting. Beyond the historical context, this video re-source examines how early church leaders viewed the role of laity inside and outside of the church. It also challenges today’s church members to embrace their rich heritage as disciples by sharing the message of hope we have in Christ Jesus.
Make plans to join us every Sunday morning at 8 AM as we look into the History of the Church.
As we study God’s revelation, may we always remember that God’s Word is more than ink on a page or mere information, rather, Jesus says His Words “are Spirit and are life” (John 6:63). His Word is living and life-giving. Ladies Bible Class meets each Wednesday at 10:00 AM in the Narthex of the Church. All ladies are welcome to join us. You may also invite your girlfriend, sister, mother, or daughter.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
On Tuesday’s at 10 AM, in the large meeting room of Fellow-ship Hall, we dive into the Word of God. Currently we are looking at the teaching of Original Sin and Free Will. A correct understanding of sin is foundational to the understanding of the Gospel. The more we come to realize the severity of our condition, the more our appreciation of the Gospel’s beauty grows. If our problem is only that we do bad things, then the solution is to do the right thing. If our problem is that we are “sick” or “weak”, then salvation is a matter of healing and giving us spiritual strength. The Bible, though, tells us that we are “dead in trespasses and sins.” This means that salvation must be God’s work. In this series of Bible Studies we will let the Formula of Concord (1577) lead us into the Scripture’s teaching on Original Sin and Free Will. When we see the depth of our sin we also see the height of God’s great love for us in Christ. So, come join in on this study. You will be well entertained by our conversations through class participation.
Ladies Bible Study on Wednesday Mornings
In a most solemn and intimate setting with His disciples on the eve of His death, Jesus spoke fewer than fifty words to institute the Holy Supper. Yet, great controversy has occurred in the Church in more recent years about what Jesus meant when He said, “This is My body … This is My blood.” Drawing on the most obvious meaning of what Jesus said, the ladies will study, with the guidance of Good News magazine, and come to the true and complete teaching of Jesus concerning Holy Communion as well as the special blessing God offers to His Church through this Sacrament.
