BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

 

Christians are called to be people who regularly explore the very basis of our faith - the word of God in Holy Scripture.  While such exploration can, and should, be done individually and in families, there is much to be gained by joining for such explorations with fellow believers - for their perspectives and insights, and with the congregation's pastor - who is called to lead such studies.  Below is a limited list of Bible study opportunities.  It is "limited", because if all of our members were in Bible study groups, as each should, we would need more groups!

 

What other studies would you like to see?

 

 

 Other Bible studies at Redeemer Lutheran: 

 

  • The Thankfulness Bible Study will start a new session Thursdays at 1:15 pm, starting on May 4, 2017.   There will be a new topic of study for each meeting.   The first study will be led by Marilyn K. and will end for the summer break after the May 25 meeting.  All are welcome to study God's holy word and to enjoy fellowship with others while learning.  Everyone is invited to join us at Brookdale Assisted Living in Claremore!

 

  • The evening Lutheran Women in Mission group (LWML) features Bible study on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m. The April meeting is cancelled, and you are encouraged to attend the community concert the following evening, Tuesday, April 25.   The next meeting wil be Monday, May 22 at 7:00 pm. 
  •  
  •  Men's Bible Breakfast is ordinarily held on the last Saturday of the month in connection with breakfast and possible work projects.  These Bible studies tend to be shorter (about 30 minutes) and each is an individual study, not part of a series.   In April the men will meet on the 22nd.

SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR ALL AGES

 

 

For children-- THE SPRING SESSIONS OF SUNDAY SCHOOL continue Sundays at 9:00 am.   We need your help in inviting and bringing more children to Sunday school!  What we learn and share together during the Sunday school/Bible class hour is of eternal importance.  As an added incentive there are good things to eat & drink at Sunday Morning Cafe beginning at 8:30 am for both adults and children. 

     

 

For adults and youth--  THE SUNDAY 9 A.M. ADULT AND YOUTH BIBLE STUDY needs you!  Please join us for exploring God’s word! 

Sunday Morning Café” offers coffee, juice, and goodies for everyone beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Sundays.  Come for the treats and fellowship!

 

Youth confirmation instruction happens on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. 

 

You are urged to take advantage of any of these opportunities for your children or yourself to be in God's word!

 


 

REAL PRAYER

Prayer is a direction of life, a focusing of one’s most personal and deepest attention Godward. The purpose is to love God and learn to know Him so well that our wills, our actions, will be more and more aligned with His, until even our subconscious reactions and purposes will have the mark of His love and His life, about them. Prayer is no longer an “activity.” It becomes the continuing language of the relationship God designed to fulfill a human life.       

 

PORTALS OF PRAYER  for April through June, 2017 are available in the narthex.  Please help yourself to one of these helpful devotional booklets.  If you need one with one of the larger sizes of print, please contact the church office so that it can be provided for you.

You are urged to take advantage of any of these opportunities for your children or yourself to study God's word in depth!
