Advent Bible Study at Salem

“Behold, Your God Will Come,” (Isaiah 35:4) is the title of our Sunday morning Advent Bible study.  Join us Sunday December 22 from 9:20 a.m. – 10:10 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  This class takes a closer look at the Old Testament reading for Sunday, from the prophet Isaiah.  These words announce the coming of our God in the Person of Jesus Christ.  Come and hear what He has done for you!

 

Coming in January

Starting Sunday, January 12  at 9:20 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall, Salem invites you to join Pastor Huebner and Deaconess Kris for a six week, two part Bible study examining “The Devotional Life”.  The first three weeks will follow Dr. David Schmidt’s recorded presentation on how cultural contexts and different life experiences pose both problems and possibilities for lives of devotion.  The course will consider how particular cultural moments present three challenges to the devotional life: distraction, disenchantment, and disillusionment. For each challenge, the study will consider how God works through his word to reform our lives of devotion that we may live as faithful disciples in a discontented age.

The final three weeks of this Bible study will offer two tracks for further exploration and growth.  Track A will be a model for personal study, while track B will be a model for teaching the faith.  For more information on this coming Bible study contact Pastor Huebner or Deaconess Kris.

 

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

Midweek Catechism Class

This weekly class meets each Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m. for 7th and 8th grade students who wish to learn more about the Lutheran faith and in the process prepare to be confirmed.  This class is for students who attend area schools where religion is not taught.   The course is currently halfway through the year.  However,  if you would like to learn more about it and are interested in having your child enroll in the next class this coming September, please contact Pastor Wayne Huebner or the church offfice at 314 352-4454.
