St. James Sunday school uses the Enduring Faith Bible curriculum. As students progress from preschool through adult, they learn all about their Savior Jesus Christ, what their Savior means for them, how to defend their faith, and how to teach the faith to others. The adult Bible class led by Grace Gillespie is also using the Enduring Faith curriculum, written for adults, to study the same lessons as the children and youth. This is an excellent weekly way to connect with all ages around the same Bible story.
Delve deeper into each week's three Scripture readings with A Longer Look at the Lessons. This Bible study based on the lectionary in Lutheran Service Book provides information about the readings and their contexts.
New member classes will be starting soon! If you are interested in attending, please contact the church office at 423-1616. The classes will meet for 12 weeks. Each session presents the essentials of faith based on God's Word. The topics are not ancient stories with little relevance for life today. Instead, you will hear the Good News of forgiveness, life, and salvation; Good News for the challenges, problems, and tribulations you experience every day. This class is a great refresher for current members too. Please prayerfully consider joining us!
The Sunday class will be at noon (child care and snacks will be provided).
The Tuesday class will be at 6:00 p.m.
We will resume our study of Time Between the Testaments. All women are welcome and encouraged to join our fun-loving group. If you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact Diana.
The Thursday morning “Coffee Club” will be resuming our weekly 7:00-7:45 a.m. Bible study. We use an informal format. The first 15 minutes is coffee and a pastry followed by reading a chapter and plenty of discussion. If it works for you, just give us a try!
This group meets on Fridays from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. at The Downtowner restaurant in Market Square. More men are always welcome!
