Adult Instruction

Are you new to our congregation?

you are new to our congregation, the Lutheran Church or would just like to learn more.
“Basic Bible Teachings” is specifically designed to teach the basics of the Christian Faith, as found in Luther's Small Catechism, in easy-to-understand terms and in a highly visual format. Young adults or adults who are new to the faith and Lutherans looking for a refresher will appreciate this simple synopsis of the Lutheran belief system.

Meetings include devotional studies and fellowship. All women are welcome.  Please check Upcoming Events for dates or contact jstern1@telus.net.  

Men's Group Reboot!

One might wonder how men's ministry is any different from a woman's ministry or for that matter, any kind of ministry. After all, it would seem that ministry, if done in service for the Lord, is all the same regardless of the gender, age, or race of the individual serving. Men's Ministry is the active pursuit of men in order to connect them to God, His Word, and other men for the purpose of winning, growing, and training God's man in Christ.
There will be one event in March (Axe Throwing) and one in April (Bowling). Plans are being made for a retreat in early May (at Camp Kuriakos)

• Dealing with the death and loss
• Dealing with significant life changes at home, like the birth of a baby
• Care and assistance provided might include:
• Providing meals (or baking/snacks)
• Visitation in the home or hospital
• Cards, flowers, phone calls, or emails to provide encouragement
• Child care to provide respite care
• Transportation (to appointments, grocery stores....)
