Summer 2019 Bible Study

Summer Bible Study led by Dan Hanner will focus on 1st and 2nd Kings

Meets Wednesdays at 7pm in the Sunday school classrooms. We sometimes think of the old testament as focusing on justice and power, while the new testament focuses on love, forgiveness, and grace. But many of the concepts of the new testament are found during the time of King Solomon and later, the prophet Elisha in 1st and 2nd Kings. This summer, we will explore some of these passages in the old testament, while connecting the lessons to our lives and praying for one another. Obviously summer schedules vary a lot, so this is very informal. Feel free to join us whenever it fits in your schedule. Read ahead if you like, but it is not necessary.

Brothers of Peace

is our men’s group that meets in the church narthex on the first Wednesday of each month for fellowship, discussion, support and prayer, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This is your opportunity to get to know other men at Peace better, and to participate in discussing the significant issues and challenges men face in our world today. Please join us! For more information, talk to any of our leadership team, Jim Nice, Ron Maree, and Steve Rinnert or contact the office. Our monthly discussion will focus on what it means to be a Christ-like Man.

Note: Brothers of Peace is taking a summer hiatus and will not meet in July and August. Their next meeting will be Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study

meets from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the church office building. Led by Pastor Sarah, it uses the process called lectio divina. We begin by sharing our highs and lows from the week. Then, we read a Bible passage (usually the gospel for the upcoming Sunday) four different times, responding to different questions after every reading. By the end of the process, we have delved deep into the text and made connections with one another. All are welcome, and it isn’t necessary to attend every week to be part of this study.

Note:  The Tuesday morning Bible study will be led by Pastor Vincent Guss during Pastor Sarah’s summer 2019 sabbatical.

Women Renewing at Peace (WRAP)

is a monthly women’s Bible Study group. WRAP meets on the last Friday of the month, at 11:00 am. We uphold the mission statement of the Women of the ELCA:

As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in  faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
