Sunday Class Offerings
(Held during the Sunday School Hour 9:30 – 10:30 am):

New Member Orientation – This four-session class will follow right after the Introduction to Lutheranism class. These classes will also take place on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 am. New Member Orientation will provide you with wonderful opportunities for hearing about the vision and mission of Our Father, connecting with others and growing in the faith as you become a part of our family.

New Member Sunday – June 23, 2019
For everyone who attended the above classes with the desire to become members of Our Father, we complete the membership process with a formal “Welcome!” into membership during the Sunday morning worship services on June 23.  This allows for current members to have the opportunity to see and greet our newest members, to get acquainted and to make connections.

House or Home – Led by Philip and Sara Winkler in Room 300/301.
This parenting class is published by Chip Ingram. Our most exhilarating joys and agonizing sorrows will likely come from the same source … our children. As parents we understand that raising children is a high stakes adventure. One of the greatest stewardship responsibilities you will ever undertake is rearing them to be mature, responsible, followers of Jesus. To say that parenting is a great challenge is a vast understatement. With so many competing ideas and philosophies, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed. This feeling is amplified by the fact that so many parents
grew up in broken, dysfunctional families. But there is HOPE. In the midst of all the white noise
about parenting, let’s explore what God has to say in Scripture in timeless truths that still work

Jeremiah (May 5 – June 16) – Led by Curt Becker in the Conference Room.
The Book of Jeremiah is the longest prophetic book in the Old Testament. He is often regarded as the greatest of the Hebrew prophets. The people of Jesus’ day often identified Jesus with Jeremiah. Jeremiah had a profound effect on the future development of both Judaism and Christianity. Come and explore the life, times, and ministry of the remarkable Old Testament prophet.

The Gospel of John (January 6-August 11) Led by Tom Hacker in the Chapel
Tom Hacker will lead an in-depth Bible study on the book of John from January 6 until we start new courses in August 2019. In no other gospel does Jesus, in His I AM declarations, so emphatically proclaim His divinity, while John reveals the deeper meaning of Christ’s message and His miracles. Come with your Bible, ready to dig in the depths of this deeply philosophical Gospel account.

NEW   College and College-age Ministry
Sometimes the “in-between” can be…awkward. You’re too old for the high school student ministry. You don’t want to go to Bible class with your parents. If you are a college student, or a college-age young adult, come hang out with the cool kids we all really want to grow up to be just like. We’ll spend time together in God’s Word exploring topics that are relevant to our lives right now.
