Bible Studies

This page contains ministry opportunities at Our Savior Lutheran Church and School in 2021 as we continue to gather in new ways around the Word of God. May the Lord guide each of us to a greater faith and trust in Him as we learn, live and share Christ together.

We invite you to:

  1. Worship Faithfully

Honor the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy” – We honor the Lord and His Word through weekly worship with the body of Christ. Worship in person or online Sunday mornings at 8:30 (traditional) or 10:30 (contemporary). Monday night worship will resume at 7 p.m. on January 4 in-person only, following the Sunday communion schedule. (no Monday night services during Lent – Ash Wednesday is February 17)

  1. Study the Word

If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples…” – We grow closer to Christ by spending time in the Word of God. Choose a Bible reading plan to help with regular Bible reading, and join a Bible study online or in person. Wednesday Bible Study resumes January 6 at 11 a.m., in-person and online, studying the book of Revelation. Other online studies include 1 Peter and the Exodus. Find Bible resources under Faith Resources on our website.

  1. Be in a Small Group – or Smaller Group

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” – We “disciple” each other as we discuss and encourage each other in applying God’s word to our lives. Small Groups continue to meet, and you can also join a smaller group – a huddle (4-6 people) or a triad (3 people) for a six week discussion of discipleship. Small Groups (and smaller groups) help us build relationships, encourage each other, and care for one another as the body of Christ.
