We encourage both children and adults to spend time learning and growing in Christ. We offer Sunday School for children (ages 3 and up) and several different adult Bible Study options each Sunday morning, as well as other educational opportunities throughout the week. The current schedule is listed below. We have Women's studies, Men's studies and other small groups.
Youth Sunday School (Ages 3 - Grade 8)
Currently on hold. Studies will begin again as soon as possible.
The Sunday School lesson today focuses on “Solomon Builds the Temple.” Though God resided within the Old Testament temple, He was hidden behind the veil in the Most Holy Place. Jesus is the unveiled Most Holy Place, accessible to all, enfolding believers in the arms of His Word and Sacraments. Parents might ask, “What kinds of things would you have seen in Solomon’s temple? Where do we see Jesus today?”
Predesti – What?
Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall
One of the teachings of the Bible that has given people pause over the years is “predestination,” the teaching that God has elected His people to salvation in Jesus before the beginning of time. What does this mean? Can I tell whether I’m elected? What about free will? We’ll take a look at how these teachings are approached in the Formula of Concord over the next few weeks in Adult Bible Class.
Men's Bible Study
Wednesday mornings at 6:30 a.m. at Gebbys 726 E. War Memorial Dr., Peoria Heights
The Gospel according to St. Matthew: Join us as we read through Matthew’s Gospel (the foundation for this year’s Sunday Gospel readings). While there are arguments about how early it was written, the Church has always placed it at the front of the New Testament because of the emphasis on Jesus as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophesy.
