Adult Learning

Sunday Morning Adult Education
Sunday Morning Adult Education is a lively gathering of thinking people which meets September through May at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings after worship either in smaller group or in large, congregation-wide plenary session. Topics include an array of subjects such as traditional teachings of the Church, interacting with social issues such as anti-racism, and are led by vibrant guests from the community as well as teachers from within First Lutheran.

Wednesday Bible Study
Wednesday Bible Study is taught by Pastor Dan in the church library every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., September through May. Lively discussion ensues among a diverse group of people, and we’re not afraid to question, struggle, deepen, and search for the meaning of life and God together.

Silent Prayer Retreats 
Two times a year, interested people go on silent prayer retreats in order to deepen in prayer and experience God in the quiet. They make their way to various religious communities such as the Sinsinawa Mound in Wisconsin, and New Melleray Abbey in Iowa. On the retreats, participants gather for small group sharing and learning, daily eucharist, the prayer services of the monastic communities, and are given plenty of time for private prayer and can make an appointment for the ancient Christian practice of spiritual direction.

Women's Bible Study
Meets twice a year using the WELCA Gather magazine as a study source.

Men's Fellowship Group
Meets the third Tuesday evening of the month with a light supper and a planned discussion of topics using the Master Builder's Bible for Men series, and additional topics suggested by those attending. 

Destiny Book Group
The last Monday of each month 12-15 persons gather for open and lively discussion about a book that was read during that month. Members of the group suggest books of various genres for reading.

Our mission is to worship God, to serve others, to support one another,
and to invite all people to share in this Christian ministry.
