SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
9:30am -10:30am Every Sunday:

Our Sunday Bible Studies are held from 9:30am-10:30am every Sunday.

9:30am “God Talk” Room 117: We talk about God – His character and His promises – as He is revealed through the Bible and manifested in Jesus Christ. Led by Peggy Hoppes

9:30am “Seekers” Room 216:  Led by Lanne Brehmer.

9:30am “Logos” Room 118.  Led by Richard Wagner

9:35am and 10:45am “Parenting/Grandparenting” Room 215.  Led by Matt Olson

Song of Solomon Bible Study:

Sundays at 9:35am and 10:45am

ATTENTION! Parents and Grandparents:

Have you talked with your children* or grandchildren* about dating, love, romance & sex? If “yes,” good job! If “no,” this study will be a good place to get prepared.

 

ATTENTION! Young Adults married or  considering marriage:

Gain some profound and helpful insight from God’s Word on how it is meant to be.

 

This study, Song of Solomon, uses Pastor Tommy Nelson’s now-classic study. It’s more relevant today than ever before. Whether you are single, married, engaged or divorced, this teaching is an absolute must. There is never shame and guilt, but there is laughter, truth, forgiveness, practical guidelines and joy as you say like millions of others, “Wow, I wished I had heard this years ago.”

We meet at 9:35am & 10:45am in The Shepherds’ Cave: Room #214 (across the hall from its original spot).

February 2nd: The Art of Courtship, Part II
February 9th: The Art of Intimacy, Part I
February 16th: The Art of Intimacy, Part II
February 23rd: The Art of Conflict, Part I

 

*Note: A teenage version of this study, entitled “S.O.S. – Song of Solomon”, done by the same pastor, is scheduled for February & March High School class times. Parents & Grandparents, seeing this will give good insight on what the High School study on Song of Solomon will be like and hopefully will give extra incentive to get your young person to these important, life giving classes.

40 Day Lent Challenge: Take “Any 15” minutes of the day to do the Faith5 together.

 

Faith5What is the Faith5? It is:

1. Sharing “Highs” & “Lows” of each other’s day.
2. Reading a Bible verse together.
3. Discussing how that verse relates to current life.
4. Praying together
5. Blessing One Another

 

Be Equipped & Be Trained this LENT:

Pick-up a “Holding Your Family Together,” book where the whole philosophy, theology, and practical practice of these five simple steps are laid out that will help bring your family closer to God and each other.

Hear and See why and how this practice works via short video teaching and testimonies in the Family Life Center, following the Lent Services (March 4th, 18th, 25th, and April 1st)

Practice, as together Kindergarten – 4th graders and Adults of all ages play and pray together in the Family Life Center on these special nights, as well.

As a Lutheran congregation, we are committed to guiding adults from a Biblical perspective toward Christ-like Discipleship.

 

Our Vision for Adults:

  • That they will know Jesus Christ.
  • That they will know God’s Word.
  • That they will know themselves and grow in their own spiritual walk.
  • That they are prepared, able, and desire to share the love of Christ with others.
  • That they will demonstrate their faith, as they mature, through good works.

How you can get connected:

  • Attend a Sunday morning class
  • Attend a weekday Bible study
  • Participate in a Friends N Faith Group (FNF)
  • Join us on a Women’s or Men’s Retreat
  • Serve by volunteering to lead or assist in a class, a small group, an FNF group, help out in our church library, and/or by joining one of our retreat teams.
