Adult Bible Class

Adult Bible Class on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM (following the Divine Service) in the sanctuary!

“A Man Named Martin — How God Worked Through the People and Events of Martin Luther’s Life.”  Join us for Adult Bible Class following the Divine Service as we continue the study, “A Man Named Martin.”  In this study, we focus on the ways God worked through the people and events of Martin Luther’s life to draw the Church back to His Word—looking to Scripture alone and finding there the pure Gospel that we are saved by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ alone. 

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16)

Kids of all ages are invited to dress up after Sunday School and get some sweet treats.

Members of the congregation are invited to decorate their cars and pass out goodies to the children as they make their way around the parking lot.

Please no witches, ghosts, vampires, zombies, or anything of a scary/evil nature. Your cooperation is much appreciated. 

Arch Books Available!  

The Arch Book series tells popular Bible stories through fun-to-read rhymes and bright illustrations. This well-loved series captures the attention of children, telling the Bible stories in an enjoyable and memorable way. 

A new set of Arch Books are available to families.  The Life of Jesus set is available at the Greeter’s booth.  The Book is a gift from the Sunday School and is another beautiful set of 12 classic Arch Books. This set was paid for by a Thrivent grant. Thanks Thrivent!
