Take advantage of these opportunities to study the Scriptures together with others. We offer a variety of Bible study classes during the year. Whether young or old, experienced Christian or curious observer, join us as we take time to learn more of God's Word for us together.
Bible Study & Sunday School
Sunday morning Bible class is held at both campuses, beginning at 9:30, for adults and teens. We study books of the Bible, specific teachings, and aspects of life as Christians. Attending Bible class between the Sunday worship services is an easy way to fit more time in God's Word into your week. Plus, there are refreshments!
You can find a full Sunday Bible Study schedule with descriptions of upcoming classes here.
God's good news of our Savior from sin is for all people, and that includes children. Encourage and support your children in their growing faith by bringing them to Sunday School! Our Sunday School is held at the Hillsboro Campus at 9:30, the same time as the adult Bible class.
A Bible class is also offered Thursday mornings at 9:30 at the Wonewoc Campus. Currently we are studying "Favorite Bible Passages". Certain Bible passages may be very familiar to us, but God's Word always has something to teach us, even in the places we might think we already know so well. Come join us for this weekday study opportunity!
"Catechesis" is term that describes a process of education in the basic teachings of Christianity. Catechism class is how we carry out this process for our young people, studying the truths of Scripture with the helpful summaries of Martin Luther's Small Catechism. Our youth Catechism class is intended for middle-school aged public and homeschool students. Through this class, they will have the opportunity to carefully study the basic teachings of the Bible and see how the truths of God's Word apply to them now and for the rest of their lives. Catechism class also prepares students to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion.
If you'd like to know more about our practice of catechism and confirmation, feel free to talk with one of our pastors.
This class is meant to give a foundational understanding of what Scripture teaches, much like Catechism class. In fact, you could call this the Adult Catechism class. This class is offered to anyone who wants to know more about what we believe and teach at St. Paul Lutheran. If you are interested in becoming a member of our congregation, taking this class will most likely be part of that process. Current members are also encouraged to take part in one of these classes, especially if it's been a while since you took a catechism class or BIC.
If you're interested in getting started with BIC, talk to one of our pastors.
