Monday Morning Women's Bible Study - Following Jesus

Study time 9:50 - 11:30 am | 130s
Following Jesus is an experience-filled study on the life and ministry of Jesus. The Vertical Focus of these experiences is Jesus-centered—every single gathering invests in growing an intimate appreciation for Jesus, and practicing an intimate relationship with Him. The Horizontal Focus is a strategy of engagement that is fundamentally relational and conversational.
We hope to see you on Mondays!

Starting Point - A New Member Class
Our Congregation seeks to deepen our connections to Christ and one another.
Starting Point does that in a group setting especially for those who are newer to this congregation. Whether you are new to faith, re-engaging your faith or seeking a new congregation in which to live your faith…something has drawn you to Christ the Savior. Starting Point will help you connect with new friends by sharing rich conversation around some basics of your faith journey.
For those considering becoming members of the congregation, Starting Point will help you discern that decision…but taking part in Starting Point is NOT a commitment to becoming a member of the congregation. Starting Point is a safe place to explore your story, doubts, questions and beliefs. Grab a donut and coffee from the café and join Pastor Brian for the journey on Sunday mornings between the worship services from 9:45 - 10:45 am on the Sundays listed below. Child Care is available – simply indicate that need when you sign up.
Along the way through this 8 session group experience, you’ll meet many of the volunteer leaders of ministries, and gain insight as to how we live our mission to Know, Love and Serve Christ. We’ll explore some particular Lutheran lenses on Christian Faith and have plenty of time to get to know one another. A Starting Point guidebook will be provided.
Every great journey has a Starting Point – we hope you’ll make this the next step in your journey!
Starting Point Gatherings:
May 7 & 21
June 11 & 18
July 9, 16, 23 & 30
Make as many as you can – it’s fine if you have to miss one or two!
Civic Life and Faith
Sundays beginning June 18 | 9:45 - 10:45 am
The intersection of faith and politics is a hot topic in the world today…and perhaps always has been. Some see these topics as taboo…and best avoided. However, Christians have always had to navigate how best to live their faith within the realm of civic life. Christianity has existed under all kinds of different systems of governance. We have the benefit of living in a democracy, a political context designed, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, to be “of the people, by the people and for the people”. Join us for a study on how we can engage in civic life from a faith perspective that is particularly Lutheran, grounded in the example of Christ and the witness of the scriptures.
Civic Life and Faith is a study series that has been made available to congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as the national church discerns a new Social Statement on the topic. Our participation, and feedback, will contribute to the final form of that Social Statement. So…join this important conversation! Engage with your sisters and brothers in Christ on a challenging, but critical journey of deepening your perspective on how people of faith navigate civic life.
Dates and topics:
June 18 – How Is God’s Invitation to Discipleship Lived Out in a Democracy?
June 25 – How Do Christians Address Controversial Civic Issues?
July 16– What Are Lutheran Views on Civic Life?
July 23 – What Are the Objectives of Democracy in the United States?
July 30 – What's Faith-based Living Got to Do With Civic Life?
August 6 – How Do We Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord in Civic Life?
