Sunday School News
It is always a joy to here the good news set to beautiful melodies, delivered to us from the mouths of children. This February, the Sunday School children will be singing on Transfiguration Sunday, February 11th during the 9:00 a.m. service. On that day there will be no Sunday School classes held; however, Sunday School will continue to hold classes on February 4th, 18th, and 25th. We give thanks always, remembering Zion’s children, parents, and Sunday School teachers and volunteers, in our prayers.
Confirmation class continues to meet every Wednesday in February, starting at 6:30 p.m. for vespers.
Adult Bible Study
Sundays, 10:15 AM: Romans
St. Paul’s letter to the Romans, the longest epistle in the Bible, is considered one of the clearest proclamations of salvation by faith in Christ alone. This book inspired Luther and the Lutheran Reformation, and it continues to create and sustain our faith today.
Tuesdays at 9 AM: NEW IN FEBRUARY: the Didache
Pronounced “dee-dock-AY,” this document is one of the earliest Christian writings after the New Testament. Written at a time when some of the apostles may have still lived, it sets forth an outline of Christian worship and way of life. How did our earliest forebears in the faith worship and live, and what does it teach us?
Thursday Men’s Breakfast: Matthew
Most of our gospel readings this year will come from the gospel according to Matthew. The tax collector called by Christ, Matthew writes a gospel that some have called a “catechism of the Christian life.” He tells us the story of Jesus in a way that teaches how the followers of Jesus live by Jesus’ life alone.
