Sunday Morning Bible Classes
“Everyone His Witness”
Sundays, March 15 – May 20 at 9:15am
Our Sunday morning large group Bible study will pivot away from 1st & 2nd Peter… but not too far. We will still take on the theme of being winsome for the sake of the Gospel.
The question is: Does God want us to be living billboards for Him? That answer is always an emphatic Yes! How do we make that happen? What does it look like? Everyone His Witness is an LCMS-initiated resource aimed at helping Lutherans share the Gospel with those whom God has placed in their everyday lives. This may sound scary; after all outreach and evangelism may as well be four-letter words. Nevertheless, this is essential to who we are as disciples of Jesus. God doesn’t just casually encourage us—if we want and have the time—to witness for Him. He commands it. He expects it. “And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Oh snap… Jesus are you talking to me? You bet He is! We are all witnesses! This study will give each of us the encouragement, boldness, and most importantly—the tools—to do just that. Just imagine what a difference we can have in the most important relationships of our lives, when our faith comes through naturally in everyday conversations and interactions.

“Our Way Home” – Thursdays at 9:30am
Martin Luther once said: “In a word, the Lord’s Prayer is the greatest martyr on earth (as are the name and word of God). Everybody tortures and abuses it; few take comfort and joy in its proper use.” What did he mean? How do we abuse the Lord’s Prayer? Admit it: there have been times when you have recited in the words in worship partly sleeping and partly thinking about what you will eat for lunch. To say that we don’t always full appreciate this Jesus-given prayer is woefully accurate.
Whether you’ve prayed the Lord’s Prayer hundreds of times or are just beginning to learn it, I invite you to study this model prayer and the beauty within it. With different resources and vivid storytelling, we will explore the depth of each petition. Learn to pray the Lord’s Prayer without hesitation and with love for what He has given!
Men’s Friday Morning Bible Study
Our Friday morning crew of men meets every week. The topics/studies change but the things that remain the same are the good conversation, edifying fellowship, and delicious coffee. And we do have a number of potential great new studies on the horizon. The purpose of our men’s study is to give guys a chance to come together, pour over the truths of God, wrestle with the implications for our lives and our world, and challenge ourselves to be stronger men of faith who are more active leaders in our homes, workplaces, and wherever else God puts us. Come with your Bible in hand. It is worth waking up early! See you at 6:00am in the church library. The coffee is hot and we have open chairs to fill!
