A New Year! A New You!
Wednesdays | 6:30pm | Jan 6—Feb 10, 2021 | via Zoom
Begin the new year with a new you! In his Small Catechism Martin Luther writes this about baptism. “It indicates that the Old Adam in us should by daily contrition and repentance be drowned and die with all sins and evil desires, and that a new person should daily emerge and arise to live before God in righteousness and purity forever.” In baptism God gives a new you.
In this Bible Study we will discuss these topics:
Balancing our New Life
A New Heart
A New Mind
A New Body
St. Paul writes in Romans 6:4, “We were buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” Plan now to rediscover a new you for a new year. Sign up today for the Zoom class led by Pastor Lessing!
Biblical Prophecy: Are We Living in the Last Days?
Saturday, January 10 | 9:00am-3:00pm
In the midst of ongoing terrorism and chaos, pandemics and crazy politics, millions of people are looking for answers. Where are events in the Middle East taking us? Will there be a worldwide nuclear war? What about predictions of an all-out social, environmental, and economic meltdown? When is the Antichrist going to appear? What is the seven-year tribulation? Should I be rapture-ready? How should we understand the book of Revelation? Are we, in fact, living in the last days?
This Bible Seminar will address these issues and more. Participants will learn about Old Testament prophets, dig into the symbolism and rich numerology in Revelation and take a close look at the Left Behind novels and movies. Questions will be answered and comfort and hope in Christ will abound. Make plans now to be a part of this seminar. Invite your friends! Thank you to Thrivent Financial for sponsoring lunch.

"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.

Leaders for this study are Helen Stoerzinger and Diane Streich. Contact the church office to get connected!
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.
