2017 Report
Weekday Bible studies remain often well attended. Wednesday Bible Study completed the study of the entire Bible this year—a project had begun 9-10 years ago underneath the leadership of the late Jesse Corbett. The focus has been changed to examining the upcoming lectionary texts. Tuesday’s bible study remained focused on Christian readings rather than strictly Bible Study. In 2017, we utilized an online resource called The Wired Word, studied The Shack, Henri Nouwen’s The Return of the Prodigal Son, and some writings of Luther. Charles Nicholson carried the bulk of teaching.

Adult Sunday School, mostly utilizing Augsburg Fortress Book of Faith Series. Youth Sunday School decided to stop meeting separately and the active youth are invited to attend the adult course.
