Bible Studies

  • Sunday Bible Class – “The Life of David”

This Bible study meets on Sunday mornings at 9:10 in the church basement.   We will be using 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.  Please join us!

  • Fall Bible Study “Thessalonians”

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 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!

OWLS Dinner Area WELS seniors are invited to Friedens of Randolph on Tuesday, October 12th.  We will have a potluck dinner at 12:00. After the dinner and a devotion by Pastor Dave Nottling of Fox Lake, Joel and Mary Jane Winter will give a presentation on Cambria history and the Historical Society, of which Mary Jane serves as president.  Friedens is on the south side of Randolph, on the corner of Germania and Jones. All those 55 and up are invited. Come join the fellowship!
