A BLESSED DEATH
-- living in the confidence of the resurrection
Sunday, 8:00 a.m., Conference Room
This eleven-week Bible study and discussion series will assist members of King of Kings to think and act daily according to the faith in God’s eternal promises that we confess.
Throughout this series, beginning September 10 at 8 a.m., we will focus on God’s words to us about the cause of death, our sinfulness, and the unending life that is ours through faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Christian professionals in the fields of medicine, patient care, estates, funeral planning, etc. will all contribute to our discussions, adding to the theological perspectives taught by our pastors.
Living in the confidence of the resurrection is God’s desire for all ages, and members of all ages are invited to participate as we gather each Sunday in the Conference Room.
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD
-- the power and work of the Holy Spirit
Sunday, 8:00 a.m., Youth Room
As a Gentile believer, Luke sought to carefully research and record the transition of God’s redemptive work from the nation Israel to a people “from every tribe, tongue and race”; ie, the Church of Jesus Christ. In so doing, he revealed the hidden work of the Holy Spirit in buildng the Kingdom of God, which continues in our day “to the end of the age.”
Beginning Sunday September 17 at 8:00 am, Ken and Marsha McElreath will lead a Bible study of Luke’s account and the power of the Holy Spirit working in God’s people. Each lesson will be self-contained so that you can engage as you have opportunity and interest. Persons of all ages are cordially invited to gather in the Youth Room.
A CHURCH WITH PROBLEMS
-- hears God’s solutions
Sunday, 9:30 a.m., Kitchen
The church in Corinth was beset by problems that could have torn it apart and damaged its witness in the community. These problems and St. Paul’s pastoral admonishment to the congregation are the subject of a study of First Corinthians beginning Sunday, September 10 at 9:30 a.m. in the King of Kings kitchen.
This will be a verse by verse discussion of the epistle’s 16 chapters as the Apostle addressed the concerns of the church led by Rev. Allen Konrad. It will be useful for participants to read First Corinthians prior to the first session.
-- prayer is a powerful weapon
Sunday, 9:30 a.m., Connections Room
Whether you saw the movie War Room or not, this study provides powerful examples of how prayer is a foundational element of Christian faith. Meeting Sundays at 9:30 a.m., the group is led by Jonathan Offt. Study materials will be provided.
FOUNDATIONS OF FAITH
-- what it means to be Christian
Sunday, 10:45 a.m., Conference Room
This eleven-week study reviews in detail the chief parts of the Christian faith by addressing subjects critical to one’s understanding of God and his plan of salvation for his people through Jesus Christ.
The discussion format of this class makes it useful for one is new to the Lutheran church or who seeks an opportunity to refresh his or her knowledge and strengthen one’s faith. Foundations of Faith is a requirement for those seeking membership at King of Kings, but all are invited to attend.
The class will be led by pastors Halvorson and Balvanz and will meet at 10:45 a.m. in the Conference Room beginning September 10. Child care is available.
Friendship -- transform through strong relationships
This is a men’s 9-week study on what the Bible teaches us about true friendship and why every man needs godly men in their life.
Men are not designed to do life alone, we need other men to walk alongside of us, to hold us up through challenging times, and to rejoice with us during times of success. One of the most powerful spiritual weapons is encouragement.
Men need each other to grow in faith and to really know who God is and to help us know ourselves.
Starting Monday September 18th at 7:00 PM in Room #3.
