St. Paul writes, “Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father” (Eph 5:18–20; cf. Col 3:16). With these words the apostle invites us to pray the Psalter’s meditations, cries, shouts, and songs in light of the salvation accomplished by God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ.
This Lent we will do so using the Seven Penitential Psalms, so named by Cassiodorus (c. 485–c. 585 AD) in the 6th century AD. For centuries Psalms 6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, 143 have served as a source of prayer and reflection during Lent. Their honest confessions invite us to turn to our Lord with the same candor and humility.
These prayers are so fitting at expressing contrition that, as he lay dying in AD 430, St. Augustine asked that they be written in large letters near his bed. This study will write the Penitential Psalms large upon our hearts as they invite us to come as sinners before a holy God in order that we might receive his love and mercy anew.
"Matthew," a Living Way study
Mondays | 10am | by phone
Author of the study Rev. Matthew Kastens writes: “Matthew’s Gospel has often been identified as a ‘teaching Gospel’ more than the others.” He’s right... Matthew is the first book of the New Testament, placed there to bear witness to Jesus as the Chosen Messiah to accomplish salvation for us. You will learn much about the life and ministry of Jesus and deepen your appreciation for the work that Christ did for us.
Our study is conducted over a conference call so you can stay in the comfort of your own home to join us for this study.

Currently, our group is studying Matthew, Part 2, from the LifeLight In-Depth Bible Study Series that offers this description:“The Bible is so rich that sometimes in a relatively small portion of it we can find all of its basic teachings. Such is the case with the second half of Matthew’s Gospel. In just these few chapters we find the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith. Matthew explains God’s plan of salvation, and he gives us specific guidance for living our lives as God’s people here on earth. Additionally, Matthew shares with us a rather detailed blueprint of our future.” Join us!
Women's Bible Study
Saturdays | 9:00am
Our Women's Bible Study will be starting a new book titled: "My Scarlet Cord: A Bible Study on Hope".
Are you longing for something better? So many people, experiences, and things promise to satisfy our desires, but there is only one Person that can truly satisfy - Jesus. God uses a myriad of ways to reveal where we currently find our hope and where we should find our hope. Most people define “hope” as “wishful thinking.” But how does God define it? This Bible study is designed to explore how God defines hope and how this kind of hope can radically transform us.
Our prayer for all those who use this study is to be emboldened to hope in the face of uncertainty and live fearlessly as your faith in God grows.
Please contact the church office to join. This Women's Bible Study meets weekly on Saturdays at 9:00am via ZOOM.
