Bible Studies


Bible studies give us the opportunity to study God’s Word together and grow deeper in our knowledge of God’s love for us.  This equips us to share His Word and love with our co-workers, neighbors, friends, and people in the grocery store.

The key to faith is hearing God's Word. As iron sharpens iron, the Word of God will sharpen our faith and the ability to defend our faith against the many attacks in society today.

As a congregation, we affirm to build up one another in fellowship and encourage one another to stay true to the Word of God.

Will you please join us? For more info, call 224-2216.

Our Bible Study opportunities are listed below.


9:45 – 10:45 A.M.  THE KINGS OF ISRAEL.  Led by Jerry Wulf.  Held in the Christian Life Center or in the St. Paul room on the upper level with elevator access.  Starting Date:  August 21, 2022

A study of the kings of Israel is more than just reading a bunch of historical facts and genealogies. In fact, our study will dig into scripture, from the first mention that the people of Israel would want to be ruled by human kings in the last of the five books of Moses through the Revelation to John. We will learn that these kings had failings and weaknesses; and how God punished their sins and forgave them when they repented. We will see how intimately our Lord is involved in the lives of Israel's leaders, and what His expectations of leaders were.

In the Bible, some kings are called "good kings," and some kings are called "evil kings." What criteria was used to make this determination? What attributes did God expect in the leaders of His people? Does God have the same expectations of leaders of His people today?

Most importantly, though, we will see how the Lord God, fulfills His plan and His promises to send the Messiah to a world so desperately in need.

This study will take up most, if not all, of the education year (Fall through Spring). It will be discussion-based, and may require some at-home preparation from week to week.

9:45 - 10:45 AM - High School students – Students will investigate how to see our daily events through a Christian view. Come and discuss how your daily decisions are based on God’s Word.

Women – 10:30 – 11:30 A.M.  TAKE HEART.  Led by Karen Lindbloom.  Held in the Young Conference room by the church office.  Starting Date:  September 20, 2022.

This Bible study group is halfway through a Bible Study called “Take Heart” by Lindsay Hausch, and will pick up where they left off in the spring.  (They began this study in January.)  The main theme is God’s comfort for anxious thoughts, real-life struggles and feeling overwhelmed.  The author points out that struggle can be a training ground for spiritual growth, for a deeper understanding of God’s love for you, and that God will not let go of you.

This group sets its own pace since everyone has so much to say and  share with the rest of the group. This study will finish sometime mid-December.

A new study will begin in January so look for information regarding that study later on.  


6:00 – 7 :00 P.M.  ROMANS-The Gospel of Grace.  Led by Dennis Ryckman 605-222-7713. Held at church.  Starting Date: September 7, 2022.

Many scholars today regard Romans as the greatest of Paul’s letters and one of the foundational documents of Christianity.  Paul addresses various topics, but all point to the truth that a loving God has offered salvation to a sinful humanity through the death and resurrection of His own Son.  Reading the letter often feels like being swept along in the rapids, but in the end it leads us to the conclusion that we serve a God who is always merciful to us and always faithful to fulfill His plans for us. His grace and power are available to all who believe!

Come enjoy studying together this amazing book of the Bible.  This study will use a study guide.  Participants will be encouraged to include the scripture for the coming week in their daily personal Bible study in order to facilitate discussion and further study at the weekly meetings.  Hope to see you September 7th at 6:00 PM.

6:30 – 8:00 P.M.  JEREMIAH AND LAMENTATIONS-PERSEVERANCE IN HOPE. Contact Person: David Zuercher - 605-222-8424.

This study group meets on Wednesday night at 6:30 P.M. They alternate meeting in member’s homes. The study this year starting in September 2022 will be using Concordia Publishing book Jeremiah and Lamentations Perseverance in Hope, by Daniel Poellet and Edward Englebrecht. This Bible study will examine God’s answers on perseverance in the midst of trials and suffering, hope in a hopeless situation, and God’s faithfulness to His people. Typically members take turns hosting and leading the study, facilitating discussion using suggestions, information, questions and answers provided in the textbook.

Interesting Fact:  When the book of Jeremiah first appeared, it was cut in pieces and burned. It was rewritten and is now more than twenty-five hundred years old.

High School students – Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF). High school students gather for a game or activity, like sardines, kickball, or Pictionary. We also learn about how God interacts with us in our daily lives. Wednesdays at 8:00 PM



7:00 – 9 :00 P.M.  STUDY OF PSALMS.  Led by Matt Reitzel - 605-222-0200.  Held in the Sanctuary.  Starting Date:  September 8, 2022.

Spurgeon said, “The Book of Psalms instructs us in the use of wings as well as words. It sets us both mounting and singing.” This is the book that may make a skylark out of you instead of some other kind of a bird. This book has been called the epitome and analogy of the soul. It has also been designated as the garden of the Scriptures. Out of 219 quotations of the Old Testament in the New Testament, 116 of them are from the Psalms. You will see 150 spiritual songs which undoubtedly at one time were all set to music. This is a book which ought to make our hearts sing.
