Adult Studies and Life Groups

Our church offers a variety of learning settings for both seekers and followers of Jesus Christ in order to provide education and fellowship opportunities necessary for Christian maturity. We believe our mission will be accomplished by exploring and studying the Word of God, by instilling and nourishing a deep love for God’s Word, and by providing a foundational understanding of the Christian faith.


Due to Covid-19 restriction of in-person gatherings at the church, Sunday Morning Adult Sunday School classes are being held virtually using Zoom, and have been scheduled on weekday evenings.  When the restrictions are lifted, these classes will resume in person on Sunday morning.  


Adult Sunday School Class Discussion

The Adult Sunday School class that used to meet at 9:15 am on Sunday mornings began a new twelve-week study on Monday evening, April 5th at 6:30 pm. It's still not too late to join the study in person in the Fellowship Hall, or via Zoom.  We will be discussing Tim Keller’s new book, Hope in Times of Fear: The Resurrection and the Meaning of Easter.


Keller examines the life-changing meaning of Jesus's resurrection that can shape every aspect of our lives—our inner emotional lives, our relationships, our pursuit of justice, and our attitudes toward history and even death itself.  Easter reminds the world that Jesus was physically resurrected from the dead, and that we can be spiritually resurrected and reborn.  The resurrection of Christ brings the future power of God into our lives now, and this power will someday heal and renew the entire world.  Christians have a realistic and irrepressible hope, not a naive utopian expectation of paradise today, but a hope for our lives and our society that we can participate in the fullness of paradise yet to come.


Let us know if you plan to attend.  We will send out the Zoom link to those who plan to join online a few days before our first meeting.  If you have any questions or would like a book ($15.00), please complete the online information form..

Tuesday Evening Bible Study

Meets virtually by Zoom on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm

Living for God is the focus for our Spring quarter lessons beginning March 2nd. (Mar, Apr, May).  God comes to us in so many ways! Our relationship with God transforms us into a new creation and a holy people! In many ways the Scriptures we study will call us to re-root in the foundation questions and premises of our faith such as:

  • What does it mean to be God’s people?
  • How does the story of Jesus Christ’s life, ministry, death and resurrection shape us as new creatures?
  • Who is God? And who does God call us to be?

 

Everyone is welcome to join us at 7:00 PM every Tuesday evening via Zoom. 


Please complete the online information form to request more about this class.

Life Groups

LIFE GROUPS are small groups of 8-12 people from our church who meet together at least monthly (September - May) for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and outreach. The purpose of the Life Groups is to take the next step in growing our faith walk studying the Bible, building relationships, praying and serving and serving others. We believe the mission of the church is to make disciples - Matt 28. Each group studies the same material and everyone has their own study book. Groups are led by Pastor Greg and Elders, and they meet at different days and times during the month in homes or at church.  During this Covid-19 period, the groups meet virtually using Zoom.  The study for the Fall 2020 is Faith: Depending on God, by Dale and Sandy Larsen.  Please complete and submit the online registration form if you are interested in joining or learning more about LPC’s Life Groups.   We pray that you will consider being a part of this ministry.
