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. In this class, we discuss issues ranging from 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 February 5th: Forgiving and Retaining Sins: John 20:23 and the Office of the Keys.

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: St. Paul’s Letter to Titus
This study begins Wednesday, January 18th and will run through February 15th. This is a thoughtful study of one of St. Paul’s most neglected letters. Titus has much to teach us, not just about the Gospel (chapter 3) but about being the Church and the ministry. We will consider questions of women’s role in the Church and pastoral formation, as well as cultural questions. Wednesdays 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.
