In Their Own Words

Excerpts from a few 2014 midweek school reports:

… In Midweek School I learned that fear means love.  When they say, “You should fear God” which that means you should love him not be scared of him.  I really like that they use a strong word like fear not just love.

Jensyn E.

… I love Midweek.  It’s fun to do cool big kid things and use big kid tools.  My favorite thing is learning about Jesus and God.  I get to see so many people here at church.  Church is the best place to be when you need God.  I hope someday you feel that way too.

Emmalee W.

… In Midweek class we read about the ten commandments and their meanings like one was about the 7th  commandment, You shall not steal.  The story was about Zacchaeus.  The whole point to get was, We should fear and love God so that we do not take our neighbor’s money or possessions, or get them in any dishonest way, but help him to improve and protect his possessions and income.

Jayden E.

We finished our study of Mathew. We have started studying the Gospel of Mark. This would be a great time to join us.



Marriage by God’s Design is a new Bible Study being offered in the Conference Room on Sunday morning at 9:30. With the use of videos, group discussion and timely topics it looks at marriage as God designed in the Bible. You are most welcome to join this new group study.

Bible 101 – Online Bible Study

Bible 101 is an online Bible study from Concordia Publishing House where you enter a personal online learning experience.  You start out by looking at essential Bible basics and then build upon that as you progress through the course.  You can go through each session at your own pace and when you have time.

The sessions are fresh and relevant.  It uses resources such as videos, assignments, quizzes, online discussion, podcasts and more.

There is no software to download and no need for special equipment.  A basic computer with access to the Internet is all that’s needed to start learning.  You have unlimited access to the course, so you can go back through the sessions again if you want.

If you have been reading through the Bible this year, this is an excellent course to sublimate your readings.
