Krazy Kinfolk in the Bible-A Study of Not-So-Perfect Families + Pastor Bloch + Fellowship Hall

Do you ever wonder if your family is beyond HOPE?  Maybe you make excuses for your parents and hope no one asks about your children.  But, God isn’t done with them yet (or YOU for that matter)! It’s nearly impossible to find a perfect family in the Bible. Most were highly dysfunctional.  This class will look at those not so perfect families who were forgiven and by His grace, still able to do great things for God, in spite of past dysfunctions, sins, and illegal activities.  If God can use them, imagine how he can use you and your family! Begins September 8, 2019.

Lutheran Doctrine and Practice + Pastor Rodriguez + Fellowship Hall

Details make a difference when it comes to computer programs working properly and medical tests getting the correct results. Sometimes we don’t see the importance of details when it comes to what we believe and how we put this faith into practice. Since “doctrine” is simply another word for “teaching,” and Jesus said we are to "teach all things” He has commanded (Matthew 28), this class will look more deeply into what Scripture has to say about current issues where the details really matter. Begins September 8, 2019.

The Minor Prophets...Who? + Vicar Ronchetto + Fellowship Hall

Those small books at the end of the Old Testament can be confusing sometimes. The names are hard to pronounce, and the messages are hard to follow. But these are the records of the men who spoke to Israel from God – and they are still speaking to us today! In this class, we will read through passages from eight of the prophets from Hosea to Malachi, learning a little about each prophet in the process. We will also look at two books – Habakkuk and Malachi - in their entirety. We will see how God spoke about the past through these prophets in order to understand the present difficulties, all while pointing to the future coming of Christ! Begins September 8, 2019.

Master Criminals: Not-So-Nice Bible Studies Matt Nieman + Youth Room

Think of the most devious, most dastardly real-life crimes – murder, robbery, deception, kidnapping. These are the stories you’d see on TV, but maybe not ones you’d expect to read about in the Bible. But God’s Word is full of stories about crimes against God’s Law because God’s people are born sinful. These true crime stories show us how God’s justice smashes the sinful, the sinister, and the sneaky. They teach about the most masterful criminal of all, Satan. And they explain that Jesus conquered all crime forever by His death and gives us a permanent get-out-of-hell-free pass. Join Matt Neiman on Sunday mornings at 10:15 AM up in the Youth Room! Begins Sunday, September 8, 2019.

What Do Lutherans Believe, and Why?  + Pastor Blomenberg + Heritage Room (203)

This course will look at the essential teachings of the Bible about life, God, the world, and the future.  It provides the basic information needed for someone who is thinking about joining our church and can be a good review for members who have been here all their life.   We will look at the Bible's perspective on evil in a world God made good; how we can speak of God's creation in view of current scientific theory; and how Scriptures written long ago are reliable for us. We'll also address how we can  we be certain of salvation and how our beliefs are similar to and different from other Christians.  Using the Bible, a workbook, the Catechism, and discussion, we'll discover real answers for tough questions, including the ones you want to ask.  This class will prepare non-members to join the church, but there is no obligation to do so.  Begins Sunday, September 8, 2019.
