Sunday Morning Education Classes
Sunday Morning Bible Study
Bold. Impulsive. Passionate. Simon the disciple, later given the name Peter, grew up a fisherman on the Sea of Galilee. One minute he was boldly defending Jesus, the next he was standing in His way – or completely denying Him. But Jesus saw what Peter would become with the power of the Holy Spirit. He turned this undependable disciple into one of the solid pillars of the Early Church. Join Elder Woody Babb for this adult Bible study called, “Simon Peter: Fiery Fisher of Men.” This class is held from 9:20 -10:10 a.m. each week in the Fellowship Hall. Learn how Jesus transforms you into a firm, confident, dependable person of God.
Summer Sunday School: “Serving with Joy”
Salem Lutheran’s young members are invited to learn how our Lord Jesus serves us as our Savior and how God enables us to serve others with joy, at Summer Sunday School. It meets each week from 9:20 a.m. to 10:10 a.m. in the Conference Room and is open to children entering Preschool 4 through 4th grade. Older kids are welcome to serve as helpers. Join Pastor Huebner and Mr. Wittmayer as they lead the kids in connecting biblical characters with present-day vocations under the theme “Serving with Joy.”
Volunteers Needed for this Fall’s Sunday School
Salem is looking for a few teachers to make its Sunday School program a great place to learn about Jesus! Sunday School will meet each Sunday beginning September 8th in several locations on the Salem campus between 9:20 a.m. and 10:10 a.m. Kindergarten students through those in eighth grade are scheduled to meet in the school building. High School students will meet with Mr. John Wittmayer in the church conference room.
If you are ready to commit to teaching this year or would like to have more information please contact Laura Frank. In addition an office assistant is being sought. This person will be responsible for buzzing parents and students into the school building so everyone is secure.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study Returning in September
This lively Bible Study will return on Tuesday, September 3rd from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. The class will be taught by Pastor Wayne Huebner and Vicar Brian Nowak. It will study the Psalms under the theme, Conversations with God. Perhaps no other portion of the Scriptures is so well known and yet so little understood. Most people know a few “literary gems” or “appetizers” from the Psalms. But we are invited to sit down at the table and enjoy the Psalms’ full spiritual feast. We will also see Christ Jesus in the Psalms through the light of His Gospel for our lives. This study is for people of all ages. You will not be called upon to read aloud or comment unless you wish to do so. 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”, will be held at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday September 11th and then each successive Wednesday evening through November 13th. The course will last from 6:15 to 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 will be led by Pastor Wayne Huebner.

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 start on Wednesday, September 4th and continue each Wednesday through November 20th. The class will 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 will be available but please RSVP. The cost of the workbook is $14 and scholarships are available. Please contact Deaconess Kris before August 29th to reserve your workbook or for more information.
