Growing in faith through learning is important for children, but even more important for adults. We offer opportunities to go deep in the Word and enhance your relationship with God.
Sunday mornings between worship services at 9:45 am from September to May. There is often an opportunity for adults to gather for a Bible study or discussion of a contemporary issue.
Men’s Bible Study
All who identify as male are invited to gather at 8:15 am on Fridays at a local Panera Bread for conversation about a Bible text.
Women of the ELCA
All who identify as female are invited to meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month (September to May) for Bible Study and fellowship.
First Communion Class
For grades two and up, but younger children can receive instruction if agreeable to parents and pastor.
Sunday Kids' Club
Children, grades K-5, can participate in a one-room Sunday School from September to May at 9:40 to 10:35 am. We use a homegrown curriculum that focuses on Biblical themes over four weeks. Our goal is not just to teach our children how to "talk the talk" but to "walk the walk," living faithfully as disciples of Christ. We integrate service-based activities, parent involvement, and the involvement of our own ministry groups to lead by example in the Christian life, while never neglecting more traditional bible lessons.
Confirmation Instruction for Teens
We meet Wednesdays at 6pm in the St. Michael Annex for a short, half-hour class. Our current course of study is the New Testament. The class is open to all seventh and eighth graders, or sixth graders with mutual consent of teachers and parents.
For grades six and up. We meet twice a week: our Midweek Socials meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm following confirmation, while our Sunday Socials meet between services at 9:40 on Sunday mornings. Our midweek socials are focused around table fellowship, fun and games, and a devotion on a "controversial topic" while our Sunday socials are focused on learning from biblical themes.
