bible studies & Groups

Christ the Servant Lutheran offers a number of Bible Studies, Christian training, and groups where we come together to support one another.   See current offerings listed below.    If you are not finding a fit, please contact Cindy or Joe Beal for guidance and introduction.

sunday mornings

Children & youth

Jesus told us: “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven”. -- Matthew 19:14   


From infancy through young adulthood, we intend to wrap our children and youth in His love and impart the Gospel to them.

Nursery

CSLC has a beautiful, clean nursery where the youngest guests can play while their parents attend service.   See Cindy in the church office if you would like to use this service.

Children & Youth

Many activities are planned throughout the year, including Neighborhood Bible Camp which was held July 18 - 22 with 26 attendees.   Classes are developed and available when needed.

Confirmation

Youth in grades 6 - 8 meet Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the church to learn more about our Christian faith and what it means to them.   Study is augmented by activities, including hikes.   Three young men were confirmed in May.

Beginning November 6 @ 9:15 a.m.

prayer:

opening the door to my relationship with god


A six week study on prayer to bring us closer to God.  We'll explore what the Bible teaches us about prayer and the adventure that awaits us as we make it a priority in our lives.  We'll learn how prayer can make a difference in our lives and the lives of our loved ones.  


Sundays @ 10:15 a.m.

Living Way

This Adult Bible Study, led by Laura Homan,  uses Living Way Bible Study materials.  It is a  practical course of study with a special emphasis on the application of God's Word to the life of the individual. It calls for a commitment of time and leads to a deeper and richer walk with the Lord.   It follows a 4 step process including: Personal Study,  Small Group Study, Lecture, and Author's Commentary.  

The group reconvenes after summer break on September 18 with a study of Galatians.

women's bible studies


Our women seeking to learn more about the Bible have grown in number exponentially over the past few years, despite covid lock-downs – or maybe because of them.   (God does work to turn trying circumstances to a better purpose.)   


Currently we have two separate group studies described below.

tuesday mornings  @ 9:30 a.m. @ church

women's study

This women’s group will recommence with study on September 20 using materials from Beth Moore's A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place.


Each week there is a lesson to complete using the Inductive Study method and we meet for discussion.   We challenge and encourage each other and build lasting relationships.


Wednesday Evenings @ 6:00 pm via zoom

Women's study

This group started at a small table at Panera Bread in 2019 and quickly outgrew that space.  Then covid came and we learned to Zoom with each other.    

The women work their way through selected study materials, slowly and deeply, sharing their life experiences as they learn and laugh together.  

The group is back from their Summer break, eager to learn more. 

Tuesdays @ 11:30 @ church  

bring your lunch

men's connection

Using passages from  "Our Daily Bread" monthly booklet (freely available in the church lobby) as a launch point, this group of men gather to discuss a multitude of issues.   They learn from each other’s perspectives and seek to understand God’s purpose in current circumstances.   The men enjoy camaraderie over their lunches and also discuss ways to be excellent disciples.

Thursdays @10:00

In the Community Room (or thru Zoom)

Discovery Group

Available in person or through Zoom Discovery Group members participate in an interactive  Bible study discussion, currently focused on the  book of Isaiah.  Everyone is encouraged to share.    


Each week a recap is provided of the study and prayer requests.   September 29 kicks off a study of Romans.
