Sunday Morning Bible Classes
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD
-- the power and work of the Holy Spirit
Sunday, 8:00 AM, 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 building the Kingdom of God, which continues in our day “to the end of the age.”
Ken and Marsha McElreath 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.
CLOSING THE BACK DOOR
-- caring for inactive members
Sunday, 8:00 AM, Conference Room
What do we do together at church? At least part of the answer to that question is found in Galatians 6:2---- "Carry each other's burdens, and in this way.... Fulfill the law of Christ" We as a congregation do carry each other's burdens, and we can learn to do it even better. It is in this spirit that King of Kings is offering this new 8 week class "Caring for Inactive Members: How to Make God's House a Home". This class will help us reach out to these members and bring them home again.
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN
-- study of John
Sunday, 9:30 AM, Kitchen
A study of the 21 chapters of the Gospel of John will begin in September, 2019, on Sunday, at 9:30 AM, and facilitated by Rev. Allen Konrad. Each week, a chapter will be read and discussed. New International Version Bibles will be available for participants, but it is recommended that you bring your own Study Bible Version.
THE FIRST WEEK
-- The Creation Account and our World Today
Sunday, 11:00 AM, Kitchen
Ken and Marsha McElreath will conduct a five-week study beginning Sunday September 8, called "The First Week." This class will examine the Biblical creation account in Genesis chapters 1 and 2, connecting it to what we experience in our world today.
This study is intended to be profitable for young people particularly, as it will give a foundational context to school courses in the sciences, environmental and social studies, as well as current topics in the culture at large. Its purpose is not to prove the creation account but to rightly understand our world through it, including “hot topics” of our day.
FOUNDATIONS OF FAITH
-- New Member Class
Sunday, 2:00PM, Conference Room
Who defines what it means to be Christian? What makes one a member of a Christian worshiping congregation such as King of Kings Lutheran Church? Clear answers to these and other faith questions are found in God’s Word and will be explored in a new Foundations of Faith membership class beginning soon. Hosted by Pastor Mark Halvorson and Pastor Rich Balvanz, discussion sessions will occur on four consecutive Sunday afternoons this fall: September 15, 22 & 29 and October 6. We begin at 2 p.m. and guarantee to be finished no later than 4 p.m. each week. To register, ask questions about the class or to inquire about any other matter regarding King of Kings, please call 319-393-2438 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
