About the Adult Bible Class:
Bible classes meet on Sunday mornings from 915 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
The classes are taught by pastors Walther and Hoft.
Occasional classes are taught by other laymen and special guests.
We cover a variety of topics for both beginners as well as those very
familiar with the Scriptures. Our
classes cover topics such as: Individual
Books of the Bible, survey of the Old and New Testaments, Doctrinal Topics
(Creation/Evolution, Heaven & Hell, Baptism, End Times, etc), historical
subjects (The Reformation, early church history, etc.), and practical themes
(Marriage, Family, Evangelism, etc.).
in the Adult Bible study program is a pattern of basic classes called Adult
Christian Education. Every two
years our goal is to provide seven important core classes (Adult Inquiry, Survey
of the Old Testament, Survey of the New Testament, Advanced Doctrine and
History, Christian Discipleship, Marriage and Family, Religions and
Denominations). ACE classes also
meet throughout the year along with Adult Inquiry Classes.
class introduces the Christian faith as we believe, teach, and confess in the
Lutheran church. It consists of ten
sessions (see outline of topics below). The
class meets three times a year beginning in September on Wednesday evenings,
beginning in January on Thursday evenings, and beginning in April on Tuesday
evenings. The class meets from 7:00
to 8:45 p.m. with a short break for refreshments.
Babysitting in our nursery (just across from the classroom) is provided.
Adult Inquiry Class is truly for inquirers.
All materials are provided. No
one is expected to answer specific questions or read from the Bible.
Opportunities are given for questions in each class.
Specific questions are often handled through e-mail or by telephone
during the week.

Today there are so many strange and unbiblical teachings being promoted.
Some pastors brazenly use the Gospel as a key to financial success. Seminary and college professors (featured recently on an ABC TV special) claim that Jesus needs to be understood as a political revolutionary. Oprah Winfrey periodically assures audiences that there are many paths to spirituality and salvation.

The Bible Study meets each Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. (We are going to change the time from 6:45 a.m. as it is now printed in the bulletin.) to 7:30 a.m. in the Conference Room of the Lower Level. Each week we read approximately 10-12 chapters of the Bible.
At the Monday morning class we discuss certain aspects of the section for the week. The Bible selections are part of the Today’s Light Bible Study published by Concordia Publishing House. You can order a bi-monthly study guide. Other questions and leader’s notes are available at: Today's Light. Click here: Men's Bible Study for links to current lessons.
There is also the new Men's Ministry which meets once a month under the leadership of Pastor Walther. Follow the link to learn more.
