Adult Bible Studies

Christian Education is not just for children—it is for adults, too. Too often adults think that Bible study is not important or relevant to them.  Some even think they learned everything they needed to know by the time they were confirmed.

God’s word is not just about how to get to heaven.  It is about eternal salvation, of course!  But it is also about how to live as the children of God in the various callings the Lord places us–as spouses, parents, employees, friends, citizens, etc.  God’s word helps us deal with critical issues that affect us daily–who we are, what is our purpose, how to handle situations, what about the future, how do we love, how do we forgive, how do we hope.

Studying and being in God’s word such a great blessing. Join us, and do not fear, no one is ever called on to read or speak.  Participate as you wish.  We are just glad to have you!

Current Bible Study

In-person Adult Bible Class has resumed.

  • The class meets on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:05.
  • The class meets in the church sanctuary.
  • Masks are to be worn and social distancing of six-feet between people of different households is to be maintained.
  • Participants should sit only in the open pews and may want to bring their own Bible or use one on their phone. There may be handouts and/or use of the projector and screen, also.
  • No coffee or refreshments will be served.
  • Immediately after the class pews and chairs will be disinfected in preparation for the 10:30 worship service.

The Gospel According to Isaiah is the topic of the Sunday Adult Class.  Pastor Fritsch is leading a study of the many Gospel promises made in the book of Isaiah and their context.  This helps to understand the wonder of God’s love even more.  It is suggested that each person bring their own Bible to the class—or use an internet version on their phone as we will be looking at larger sections of Isaiah and it is not practical to project it all on the screen.  Recordings of each session will be posted below.

Recent Bible Studies

Dave Erickson recently led the adult class. The Privileged Planet was the topic which focused on how earth is uniquely designed for life—evidence of the Creator. The recorded sessions follow:

The Bible Class on October 11, 2020 was led by Pastor Fritsch and titled, God’s Word on the Harvest.

Pastor Fritsch recorded a four-session Bible class titled, Living with Life’s Burdens.  Most people feel burdened by any number of things.  These burdens can lay heavy on the soul and detract from the joy of life.  They can even have physical consequences.  In this course Pastor Fritsch discusses four practices that can help the burdened soul find some rest.  The four sessions are:

  1. Talk with Someone – God, too!
  2. Take a Break
  3. Consider the Needs of Others
  4. Nurture Hope, not Fear

Pastor Justin has recorded an eight-part Bible study for you to view.   The study is Joining Jesus on His Mission: How to Be an Everyday Missionary.  The course will alter the way you see your life as a follower of Jesus and take you beyond living your life for Jesus to living life with Jesus.
