January 6th & 13th—Gospel of Mark
Mark’s Gospel is the shortest of the four gospels, action-packed and with time and attention spent on sinners and outcasts, those hurting and in need. And does your Jesus have compassion and mercy on those in need?!? We pick up where we left off in Mark chapter 4, and see where this study takes us. Through the Evangelist Mark we will go through the hills and valleys to the place where all true Christian theology leads: Calvary’s cross and Easter’s empty tomb.
 
January 20th & 27th; February 10th and 17th “Idols in the 21st Century”
Pastor Paul Prange

We know what idols people worshiped in Bible times. Are they any different today? What idols compete with the true God in our own hearts? Pastor Paul Prange leads a discussion of Christian living in the 21st century. (Pastor Prange serves our synod as Administrator for the Board of Ministerial Education and Chairman of the Joint Mission Council. You won’t want to miss this informative and entertaining class!)
 
February 3rd--Epiphany Concert Presentation
Each year after our Annual Epiphany Concert we receive a presentation on ongoing mission opportunities in our synod. This year Pastor Donn Dobberstein (Administrator WELS Family Ministry) will be our presenter. Join us for a continental breakfast in the gym and a presentation for the whole family.
 
February 24th-March 31st--Gospel of Mark
We continue our study of Mark’s Gospel
 
April 7th --Managers of God’s gifts
We welcome Mr. Rick Kneser from our WELS ministry of Christian giving.  He will walk us through the purpose of our giving counselors and information on being God’s managers.
 
April 14th & 28th--Colossians
As in every age the devil seeks to destroy Christ and His Church.  False teachings had come into the congregation in Colossae so Paul focuses them on Christ and His person for salvation.  
 
May 5th Confirmation Examination
Come and walk through Luther’s Small Catechism during the examination of our 8th grade confirmands.  
 
May 12th & 19th--Colossians
We continue our study of Paul’s letter to the Colossians.
