Sunday Morning Education Classes

 

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Salem hosts a Bible study on Sundays titled Who Am I?  What Am I Doing Here?”  led by Pastor Wayne Huebner.  This six-session video-based study also features Dr. Joel Biermann of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.  The course talk about the universe,  God’s will, speaking the story of Jesus Christ, true human fulfillment, God’s Law, and asks, “What’s the point of it all?”  We are God’s creatures, redeemed by Christ and restored through faith.  Our role is to fulfill God’s place for us within His creation!  People of all ages are welcome. For additional information and additional resources for this Bible study you may visit this page .  The course takes place from 9:20  to 10:10 a.m. each Sunday through October 27th.

 

Salem Sunday School

Salem Lutheran Sunday School takes place from now until late May between 9:20 a.m. and 10:10 a.m.  Children from age four to the eighth grade are invited to come learn more about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Adults are also needed to help with Sunday School.  For more information please contact Laura Frank.

 

High School Bible Study

Salem’s high school age students also meet on Sunday mornings from 9:20 to 10:10 a.m. in the church Conference Room.  The focus of this weekly is the Book of Revelation and is led by Mr. John Wittmayer.  The book was written by the apostle John while he was in custody on the island of Patmos in the first century A.D.  All high school students from ninth to 12th grade are invited to take part in this Bible study.

 

Tuesday Morning Bible Study

This lively Bible Study is held each Tuesday morning from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  The class is taught by Pastor Wayne Huebner and Vicar Brian Nowak.  Perhaps no other portion of the Scriptures is so well known and yet so little understood as the book of Psalms.  Most people know a few “literary gems” from the Psalms.  But, our Lord invites us to a full meal, a banquet of the finest spiritual food found in the Psalms.  Our Tuesday morning Bible study, Psalms:  Conversations with God,  will take place each Tuesday until next May.  We’ll get acquainted with the various types of Psalms and how they deliver the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  People of all ages and biblical “expertise” are welcome.  You will not be called upon to read aloud, unless you wish to do so.  Come and join us!  We hope you will attend each Tuesday morning.

 

Wednesday Evening Education

Salem Lutheran Church and School is offering a class to those interested in becoming members at Salem.  The class  titled “Invited by God”, is held at 6:15 p.m. each Wednesday evening through November 13th.  The course will last until  7:00 p.m. each week and is open to those who would like to be members at Salem or those who would like to renew their knowledge of Lutheran beliefs.  The “Invited by God” class is led by Pastor Wayne Huebner.  For more information or to still register please contact Salem’s Director of Assimilation Pam Moellenhoff by email or by calling 314 352-4454.

 

Women’s Bible Study – Stepping Up (Psalms of Ascent)

Join Deaconess Kris and other women for an in-depth study of Psalms 120-134, lead by author Beth Moore. Traveling pilgrims sang these psalms both on the way to the great festivals of the Lord and as key elements of the worship at those festivals. Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, these 15 psalms model how we can voice our own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us.

This class will take place each Wednesday evening through November 20th. and last from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. each week at Salem.  It will alternate weeks between DVD teaching from Ms. Moore and group discussion of home study questions.  Free childcare is also available but please RSVP.
