CLASS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS
NEW RULES FOR LOVE, SEX, AND DATING
Taught by Aaron and Michele Zimmerman
Hey parents! We, as parents, are the primary influencers on our children and know that the topics of Love, Sex, and Dating are important yet sometimes awkward. This spring we will look at the challenges, assumptions, and land mines associated with dating in the twenty-first century, and how we can best communicate God’s truths to our growing children.
EXODUS: PART 2
Led by Pastor Snow
Participants in this Bible Class will journey with Pastor Snow through the Old Testament book of Exodus.
In this historically accurate account, readers are introduced to drama, suspense and God’s deliverance through the preservation and protection of His Chosen People. God’s guiding hand is clearly present in this book, in the lives of His Old Testament people and in our lives, today!
The Book of Exodus emphasizes, in a very practical way, the Biblical witness of God’s almighty power and infinite love at work in the world, in historical events and in the lives of His people. Even as God was active on behalf of the Israelites, so He is active in directing and blessing our lives. In response, the Israelites were to demonstrate their faith and gratitude for God’s blessings through their worship and service. We too, who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ, live our lives in thanksgiving to God.
Class participants will discuss our Heavenly Father’s divine call and care for His chosen people throughout all of history to the present day.
Together, we’ll see the wisdom of God in every circumstance of our lives and we’ll make specific applications of this Old Testament book to our modern-day situation, faith and life.
Be sure to join us and bring your own Bibles each week so that you can highlight and make notes for your own future reference and study!

This class is designed as an instruction for those who would like to learn about the basic teachings of the Lutheran Church and as a preparation for communicant church membership.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY: Part 2
Led by Kris Osler
Ladies, are you ready for a treat? Living a Chocolate Life is a chocolate-inspired study focusing on different aspects of life as a Christian woman, reminding you that you are wrapped in God’s love. From bitter nuggets of pain to sweet morsels of joy, whatever the shape, flavor, or texture of your days, you can live in the rich and endless supply of the grace that is ours because of Jesus. Written by Deb Burma.
HEBREWS, PART 2: WHO, WHAT, WHERE AND HOW?
Led by Dr. Lionel Alford
Hebrews is a great piece of Greek historical literature that is a primary source document for our understanding of the ideas of the early church. Hebrews is a Greek document written by a man from the Alexandrian Hebrew culture who was an observant Jew.
