Adult Bible Study

The Bible is known by many names.  In the church it is also referred to as Scripture, God’s Written Word, and God’s Holy Word. ELCA Lutherans also refer to the Bible as our “Book of Faith.” At Good Shepherd, faithful engagement with our Book of Faith is a vital part of our daily life together as it helps to nurture our faith and points us to Jesus and the lives we are called to live as Christians.

As Lutherans, we believe that studying the Bible is most faithfully done in community. While individual Bible study also enriches our understanding of God, Jesus and faith, having conversation with others about what we hear and see when we read the Bible helps us to hear and understand it more completely. Engagement with our Book of Faith with one another strengthens our community and leads us out into the world to serve the needs of our neighbors.

In our Bible studies we read Scripture together, ask lots of questions, read and listen to what Bible scholars and teachers can bring to the conversation, and we listen to one another. We may end up with more questions than we have answers, but we are okay with that.

NEW – Women in the Bible

Our final Bible study for the season will be  Sunday April 22, at 6:00 p.m.  The class will be held in the Fellowship Hall and meet every other Sunday. The class will be led by Mike McCoy who, although he’s a neanderthal guy, promises to make the class enlightening, topical, and edgy. Join us, and discover how women have played a critical role in the development of our faith, despite living in an overwhelmingly patriarchal society.

Please join us this coming Sunday evening, April 22nd at 6 p.m. for our evening Bible study.  Good Shepherd Lutheran Church member, Kari Kviten will be leading our time together with topics that include her hopes, fears, disappointments and achievements of a two and a half year Peace Corps service in Panama.  What it truly means to be a Peace Corps Volunteer: the background, lifestyle, and purpose and highlights of the roles and difficulties of being an indigenous woman in Panama.
