At Faith Lutheran Church, we love to tell the story of Jesus and His love.

Sunday School

We normally offer Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 a.m., beginning with two-year-olds and their parents. Classes for older children are divided by grade and teach God’s word and application to life lessons, using the Bible as a guide. We praise the Lord through song and Bible study. During this time when we are apart, YOU can lead your children through each week’s lesson. Here are some materials for you to use at home:

March 15 – The Lord’s Prayer

March 22  – The Good Shepherd

March 29 – Zacchaeus

Service Project: Print the pages and color the labels. If you have appropriate stickers at home that you want to add, that’s fine, too. The labels will be cut out and then taped around a water bottle. The water bottle will be just one item in a gift bag for mothers who are participating in the Nurse Family Partnership. We’ll collect the labels in the coming weeks (stay tuned).

 

After we are able to resume meeting together in person we will once again encourage visitors to our Sunday School. Stop by the church office outside the sanctuary or the coffee café in the Grand Hall outside the gym at 9:15 a.m. The Sunday School Superintendent will help you and your child join a class.

Adult Studies & Classes

Sunday Morning Bible Classes

9:15 – 10:15 am | Every Sunday

A variety of Sunday morning studies focusing on books of the Bible, Biblical themes and other issues of faith are available throughout the year. Join us for one of these current classes:

This class is offered to individuals who wish to learn more about the Christian faith and, in particular, the Lutheran Church. This class also prepares adults for membership in the Lutheran Church, if they so desire. It is also a wonderful catechism refresher for longtime members.

Please consider inviting a friend and join them for the 10 weeks of this class as we make discoveries about the abundant life God has for us in His Son, Jesus Christ. Come prepared to ask questions and learn as we study God’s amazing Word, the Bible.

 

Come see the history of how God nourishes us in Christ.

The Old Testament predicted and forshadowed Jesus Christ. This was especially accomplished through the sacrificial system which God instituted through Moses. In the background of these predictions and shadows of Jesus was the practice of sacrifice-related eating. This Old Testament worship practice prefigured New Testament worship, which also includes sacrifice-related eating. The New Testament worship-related eating of the Lord’s Supper directly links us to the sacrifice of Christ.

This study was written by Rev. Dan Brege, who now serves as President of our Indiana District.

Men’s Bible Study / Women’s Bible Study

Wednesdays 10:00 am | resumes April 15 (Wednesday after Easter)

Thursday Evening Bible Studies

Lutheran Men’s Gemütlichkeit

1st & 3rd Thursdays | 5:15 pm

Just getting off work? Grab a beverage and join in a time of fellowship with men of Faith and ULu. This group will alternate with the Thursday evening Bible studies held at church (see below).

Locations vary. Watch the calendar and bulletin announcements for details as each date approaches. For more information please call or text Andrew Rusch at 765-860-7210.

 

What does God say about…?

2nd & 4th Thursdays | 7 pm

Perhaps you or someone you know has asked the question, “What does God say about…?” (fill in the blank). It could be something in the sciences… evolution, age of the earth, genetic engineering, in vitro fertilization, global warming. Maybe it was something political like the role of government and the church, or Christian responsibilities and freedoms in the civil realm.  If you have ever asked these questions, then this study is for you. The pastors of Faith will once again be taking your questions and leading topical studies through God’s Word to discover what it is that God says on a given subject.

In order to prepare for these studies, we need to hear from you. Let us know what you would like to explore. Fill out a form from the Adult Education bulletin board and return it to the church office, or email Pastor Edwards or Pastor Beck. Watch the calendar and bulletin announcements for topics as each date approaches.
