1. Galatians—Luther’s Commentary for Everyday Life(led by James Armstrong)

2. Marriage (led by Matt & Jessica Bruning)
Two video studies are utilized to provide encouragement for marriage and guidance to enhance marriage and family relationships. “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage” and “The Five Love Languages” are not only fun, but also provide practical insights for relationships.
3. Apologetics: A Verbal Defense of God’s Word (led by Fred Lemire)
This video-based discussion addresses the questions asked in our society about God, the Bible, Christianity, and demonstrates the importance of obedience to God’s Word and thus the impact that can have on our present culture.
4. James (led by Jessica Weninger)
In this video-led study James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple.
This is an adult opportunity for both novice and experienced players. Together we will enjoy learning the technique of bell ringing in preparation for Sunday worship.
6. More Prayer
Love the movie “War Room”? Want to grow closer to God? Join us on Wednesday nights in the parlor for prayer. All experience levels welcome.

Saturday Men's Bible Study Saturday Mornings starting at 7:30am
Please join the men in the Conference Room on Saturday mornings from 7:30am until about 9am for fellowship and Bible Study.
“What Are You Afraid Of?—Facing Down Your Fears With Faith”
Fight your greatest fears in the power of your great God. Everybody’s afraid of something—heights, public speaking, even clowns. And then there are the big fears that constantly haunt our minds, undermine our sense of well-being, and paralyze us with dread and worry: the fear of failure; the fear of depression; the fear of being alone; the fear of serious illness; the fear of dying.
In this Bible study the truth of God’s Word will be applied to each of these common fears. The biblical teachings that are introduced will help you break free of paralyzing fear through God’s power and presence. In addition, you will earn how to replace the unhealthy fear of circumstances with the healthy fear of God.
No matter what you’re afraid of, God is bigger than your fear. Let Him set you free to live fearlessly as you serve and follow Him.
Join Pastor Ric on Saturday mornings in the Conference Room at 7:30am for 90 minutes of fellowship with light food and bring your own breakfast drink and your Bible to join with other men as we grow in faith and trust in our gracious, loving God to become men connected by Christ to face life head-on!
