New Sunday Bible Class starting September 12th
Our new Sunday Bible Class time begins around 9:10. We plan to use the series The Life of David. We will look at  events in David’s life and connect them to our lives. The Lord uses David’s strengths and weaknesses to teach his church. From David killing Goliath to David being overcome by temptation, we can see images of ourselves and learn how God deals justly with those he loves

Monday / Wednesday Bible Class is starting September 13
It has been said often over the last year and a half that we live in strange and difficult times.  In all honesty, ever since the fall into sin that’s been the case.  Hopefully, our next Bible Class can help us deal with living in such times.  We will work through the two letters of the Apostle Paul to the Thessalonians, under a heading:  “Encouragement and Guidance for Christians Living in Difficult Times and Places.”  We will meet Mondays at 7:00 p.m. and Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. (same lesson at each) in the church basement.  Please join us!

7th & 8th Grade Public School Catechism Classes will be conducted Wednesdays only, 3:30-4:45pm at St. Stephen’s in the basement. Classes begin Wednesday, September 8.

5th & 6th Grade Public School Catechism Classes will begin September 9, 3:30pm-4:45pm, at Good Shepherd. This is a new class this year. We are hoping to lay a firm foundation for when students get into 7th-8th grade. Pastor Reichert will lead these classes.  Questions? Call Pastor Dorn (631-7028) or Stratman (885-6960). If a student has special needs and would benefit with individual classes, the pastors are more than willing to arrange a schedule that works for everyone

New worship schedule starts Thursday, September 2nd.
