Adult Sunday School

Most Sundays, we have two separate bible study offerings following our worship service. After grabbing a coffee, a pastry, or breakfast from our post-worship fellowship buffet, join us in the Fellowship Hall or the Fireside Room for an instructive and discussion-filled lesson.

Our current offerings:

Life Together – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We’ll be starting a new adult study on Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 11AM following worship service. In Life Together, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, renowned Christian minister, professor, and author of The Cost of Discipleship recounts his unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years in Germany. Giving practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups, Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.

Won’t you join us? We’d love to have you. We’ll be in person and via Zoom. Register and receive the Zoom link here.

Living Lutheran – New Member Class

Our next new member class,”Living Lutheran”, will begin on Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 11AM following worship service. This course will run for 8 consecutive weeks and is led by Pastor Adam Thompson.  The first two weeks will be an orientation to our congregation and its ministries. The last 6 weeks will highlight the key aspects of our Lutheran confession of the Christian faith by looking at our beliefs on Baptism, the Lord’s Supper, the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and Confession/Office of the Pastor.

Our Living Lutheran class is primarily intended for people who are new to Christianity or to Lutheran teachings, although it can serve as a refresher of the basics for current members.   

Participation in this course does not obligate you in any way. Questions you have always been curious about when it comes to Christianity or Lutheran teachings? This is the place to ask! You are simply learning about Ascension on your way to discerning whether we are the right place for you to connect, learn and grow. 

During these 8 weeks you will:

  • Have the opportunity to share your own faith story
  • Learn about the ministries of our church and where you might want to connect
  • Learn and discuss the basics of the Lutheran confession of the Christian Faith
