Sunday Morning Education Classes

 

Two New Sunday Morning Bible Studies

Salem will begin two new Bible Studies on the morning of January 27th.  One is called “Sacred Marriage” and the other is “Colossians: a Study of Paul’s Imagination”.  Both classes will take place from 9:20 – 10:10 a.m. each Sunday morning through March 3rd.

What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?  Your marriage is much more than a union between you and your spouse. It’s a spiritual discipline ideally suited to help you know God more fully and intimately.  Whether it’s delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God.  Everything about your marriage—everything from the history you and your spouse create, to the love you share, to the forgiveness you both offer and seek by turn—is filled with the capacity to help you grow in Christ’s character.  Join Pastor Huebner and Deaconess Kris Paul each Sunday in the Chapel for  Sacred Marriage starting Sunday January 27th.  For more information you may view a video by clicking on the image above.

 

You are invited to join Concordia Seminary field education students Ben Oelschlaeger and Jennifer Wientge for “Colossians: A Study of Paul’s Imagination.”  This Bible study points to Paul’s work in Colossians as a key to how Christians construct their world view.  The class will dive into a variety of perspectives of this world view found in Colossians and their parallels to the dominant secular world views of our time.  The study will meet Sundays from 9:20 to 10:10 a.m. January 27th through March 3rd in the Fellowship Hall.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study

Salem’s Tuesday Morning Bible Study meets each week from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  The class is studying “Ephesians: The Church, God’s Servant.”  Everyone is invited to join this class.  Join Pastor Huebner, Vicar Teklu and a lively group for some weekly time spent in God’s Word of Life!

Every One His Witness Workshop

A workshop on how to become Jesus Christ’s witnesses in our daily lives is underway at Salem.  That is where we need to be.  Do you feel unfit or unqualified to be Jesus’ witness?  Remember that God makes us his witnesses.  “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9, ESV

Jesus invites us to the joy of bringing good news to the lost.  Our vocation as witnesses applies to four areas of relationships we have in our life:  family, occupation, church and neighbors.  The workshop meets each Wednesday through February 13th from 6:30-8:00 p.m.  This course is led by Pastor Wayne Huebner and Vicar Teklu Ketema.  For more information, please contact Vicar Teklu Ketema by email or by phone at (314) 352-4454.

 

Thursday Night Men’s Bible Study

Salem’s Men’s Bible Study is in the midst of a six week long look into the book of First John which teaches of love and fellowship with God.  All men in the congregation are invited to attend this class that starts at 6:30 p.m. each Thursday and lasts about an hour.  For more information on this class please email Vicar Teklu Ketema or call him at 314 352-4454.
