Adult Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Opportunities

† Sunday morning Adult Faith Formation returns January 7 at 9:15 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Here’s a look at our upcoming topics:
Beginning January 7 —Pastor Vera will lead a study on “Luther’s Thirst for Grace”. During the season of Epiphany you are invited to gather with Pastor Vera to discuss the religious climate that preceded the Reformation, the Quest for the “True church” and Luther’s deep yearning for Grace. Using the book “The Theology of the Reformers” as the basis of our discussions, we will look at our current religious climate and anxiety that seems to be prevalent in our world and country. Join us Sunday morning in the Fellowship Hall at 9:15am.

† In Nazareth (downstairs) – Tom McEwen is leading a class looking at the Protestant denominations which have sprung from the Reformation.

Parents Sunday School meets in Memorial Hall downstairs lead by Terry and Jim Ritter. All parents wish to be the best parent they possibly can be for their children. Come explore and share what it means to raise your children in a Christian home and to share your faith with them.

Mid-Week Opportunities

Java and Jesus
Java & Jesus, Women’s Bible study, meets Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. It is a great group of committed women from young moms to older women. It is a wonderful time of fellowship, prayer (and boy, can these women pray), support and learning together.

We will begin a new study on January 11. Come and join us. If you need child care please call Kim in the office and we will make the necessary arrangements. Come and join us and bring a friend. If you haven’t been able to come yet, just jump in when you can. We will always have a seat for you and a cup of coffee too.

Lunch Bunch
We will meet Thursday, January 18 at Lakeshore Cafe. This is a no host lunch group for seniors, retirees, those who live alone, or just want to gather with others for lunch at a local restaurant. RSVP to the office.

“Faith Matters: The Cross Road of Culture and Faith”
On Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. we gather in Fellowship Hall to discuss how our Christian Faith and today’s culture intersect. Come join us for a loving discussion of the things that weigh heavy on our hearts in this day and age. All Are Welcome.

The Mountain Men Bible Study
Throughout the Bible, God meets folks on top of a mountain. These “mountaintop experiences” transform them for the rest of their lives. Mountain Men is a gathering of men, led by Connell O’Brien, who explore the ways our faith shapes our lives while digging into the Word of God. We meet Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. in the lower level Conference Room.
