COFFEE AND THE WORD – Friday morning Bible study at 7:00 a.m. We gather at church to discuss the Scripture lessons for the coming weekend’s worship services. What an excellent way to prepare for worship!

FALL SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS – As a way to help us observe the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the fall Sunday Bible Class is titled “Reformation: Grace, Faith, Scripture”. This study includes 12 video vignettes from the 2017 Reformation celebration film “A Return to Grace: Luther’s Life and Legacy.” As we view the introductory clip for each lesson, we will deepen our understanding of Reformation history and connect with what we believe, teach, and live. This class begins at 9:30 in the fellowship hall. Please join us and invite a friend!

LESSONS FROM THE LIVES OF POWERFUL POLITICIANS- Starting this week this is the course that the Thursday morning Bible class will discuss to discover how God used the politicians of Luther’s day. As we see how the Word of God worked in these powerful people during the Reformation, we will see how it affects our lives and our church today. Come and join us in the fellowship hall this Thursday at 8:30 am.

BIBLE INFORMATION CLASS – A new Bible Information Class (BIC) will be starting Sunday, October 15th, between services at 9:15 am and will last about 14 weeks. These classes are meant for members who would like a refresher course on the basic teachings of the Bible, for anyone who would like to know more about what we teach at our church and school, and for those who are interested in becoming members of our St. John family. All materials are provided. Discussion is all voluntary. Speak with a pastor or call the church office if you’re interested in this class.
