Bible Studies

Weekly Worship Scriptures

This is an informal study group that helps participants gain deeper appreciation of the scripture texts for the upcoming worship services on Saturdays and Sundays. No preparation or special knowledge is needed. Come as you are and learn more about the Bible! We meet in the chapel and are led by Pastor Byron on Wednesdays at 10:00 am.

January Book Study: Making Sense of Scripture

This five-session course will help you ask the big questions about how we, as Lutheran Christians, interpret the Bible.  In Making Sense of Scripture, author Rev. David Lose invites the reader to engage in a conversation, one that he imagines discussing around his kitchen table, about seven major questions of the Bible. You are encouraged to read the chapters assigned to each week’s discussion in advance of the class.  Register by Dec. 20th and you will receive a complimentary copy of the book or you may purchase it online.  Once registered you will also receive the Zoom link to the class so you can attend remotely if that is a helpful option.
