“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
Studying and growing in God’s Word continues to be paramount in our life together.
Group Sunday school remains the focus of promoting biblical literacy with our young people. Once a month, parents and children gather to hear familiar bible stories that focus on God’s faithfulness, Jesus’ love and salvation, and our call to be witnesses to the world. Bible lessons are taught by parental volunteers, and are reinforced through creative activity (arts and crafts) and fellowship.
Our pre-confirmation and Confirmation classes, taught by Dale and Wayne Wright, are a direct offshoot of the foundation established in Group Sunday school. Additional class instruction prepares our children for life-long learning and service.
Adult bible study delves deeper into the Holy Scriptures. Recent discussions focused upon witnessing the faith and relating to others whose faith differs from one’s own through study of “Pub Theology: Beer Conversation and God” by Bryan Berghoef. This series wrestled with upholding faith in Jesus amidst the challenges and blessings of living in a religiously diverse world. Another text, “The Cost of Discipleship” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, aided in examining what it means to be a follower of Jesus; conversations centered upon the demand and responsibility of bearing the cross in our nation and world.
An additional series offers the opportunity to study the bible through film. A multigenerational Family Film night continues to grow in popularity. Stay tuned for details!
Growing in God’s Word is crucial as people of faith. We are proud to promote spiritual faith and development through various studies at Ascension Lutheran Church. Contact Pastor David for additional information.
