The word of God is living and active…
Bible studies can be sorted by topic.
How can we know that we are worthy of love? Is the young woman beautiful enough? Is the young man a good enough athlete? Are there qualities that are lovable? Do parents love their children because they are cute or is there another reason? Normally when we talk about worth, it’s what we bring to […]
How does God call people into the public gospel ministry? As Pastor Fred Guldberg hold two calls at the moment, one to Star of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Winston Salem and one to St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Niles, IL, this will be a timely study.
Death was a common part of the ancient world. People still die today, but it wasn’t “in your face” like was then. People go to the hospital or to hospice to face death. This isn’t bad, of course, but how do we handle the harsh realities of life when they stare us down? God has answers.
Idols come in all shapes and sizes. They don’t have to fit on your fireplace mantle or your night stand. Some look like your children or your job. Other idols resemble money or credit cards. Anything that sneaks into the first place in your life is an idol. We’ll explore this timely topic in our Sunday morning Bible class: Ends of the Earth – Idolatry.
Is demon possession real? The Bible speaks about it often, but we don’t see much evidence in modern America. The truth is that the only reason we don’t see much evidence of demon possession these days is because it is more advantageous for the devil to work in other ways. Demons and the spirit world are very real. Join us as we take a look at topic in our Bible class series Ends of the Earth: Snake Girl.
Paul and his evangelist companions get their first look at Philippi, a Roman colony in the continent of Macedonia, modern day Greece. There are a few obvious challenges and opportunities that present themselves. What challenges and opportunities do you face in life? You don’t need to go to a foreign country to find them!
We continue our video Bible Study series Ends of the Earth this Sunday. Where should the Apostle Paul and his companions go on their mission trip? God helps them find their way with a vision.
Paul spent 18 years training to be a missionary AFTER he was already a “super jew”. What could he have been doing for 18 years? How long do pastors have to train? We’ll look at the ups and downs of public ministry then and now this Sunday in our video Bible class series: Ends of the Earth.

What is the reason for the season? Jesus! of course. There are a number of other messages trying to grab your attention. Does Santa get a seat at the Christmas tree? Is there room for world peace? We’ll look at some of the Christmas “players” in 2018 and see who should be at the celebration. We answer the question “Why?” this Sunday in our Bible study – the Reason for the Season.
The Reason for the Season is Jesus! In this first of two lessons we’ll look at how God kept his promise, not to God’s people, nor to Mary the Mother of Jesus, but to Elizabeth, the mother of Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist.
Our God is the Ruler of the Universe. In these Last Days it sure doesn’t look that way. Times are rough for Jesus’ Christians and his church. None of this means that our God is any less powerful than he ever was. We cry as the church has for thousands of years, “Come quickly, Lord!” We worship Christ the King.
