Sunday Study: The Gospel According to Mark
This is a careful study of the second Gospel. We will consider the powerful presentation of Jesus and His Kingdom in Mark, paying attention to the text, the story, and how it impacts us today. Sunday mornings at 9:30 in Fellowship Hall.

First Sunday of Each Month: Tough Topics
This is a stand alone study of an issue that is rarely dealt with in a sermon or in bible study. Over the next several months, we will talk about being married to unbelievers, homosexuality, co-habitation, divorce, slavery in the bible, science and religion, and many more. The approach is to explore the Word of God and then a suggested Christian response.
Coming up on May 1st: Can Babies Have Faith? What Do the Scriptures Say?

Young Adult Bible Study
A study on James K. A. Smith’s You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit starting in January. Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m., Parsonage (currently suspended)

Midweek Wednesday Bible Study: The Raising of Lazarus
This is a five-week study of the raising of Lazarus in John chapter 11. We will look at the richness of the story, the deep truths communicated in it, the theological importance for our life and faith, and chiefly, how we can anticipate what God does in His Son Jesus Christ to answer the problem of sin and death. This class begins on May 4th and runs through May 25th. Wednesday mornings at 9:30 in the Elevator Room.

Catechesis and Formation
These classes engage in Luther’s Catechisms, the Holy Scriptures, the Psalter, the Lutheran hymnody, the liturgy and more. The aim and goal is not only to prepare for the Rite of Confirmation, but to be refreshed in Lutheran theology and practice, and to learn how the faith is lived daily. Please come and be formed and shaped by the Word of Christ! All are welcome! Currently meeting Thursdays at 4pm in the Elevator Room.

Sunday School
“We cannot perpetuate these and other teachings, unless we train the people who come after us to succeed us in our office and work, so that they in turn may bring up their children successfully. In this way God’s Word and a Christian community will be preserved. Therefore let all heads of household remember that it is their duty, by God’s injunction and command, to teach their children or have them taught the things they ought to know.” Martin Luther, The Large Catechism.
Sunday 9:30 in the Elevator Room.
