Bible Studies:
We welcome and encourage anyone to attend one (or more) of the Bible Studies we offer.
Bible studies are a great way to strengthen your knowledge of the Bible.  At the same time, you have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussions with others who have the same passion for the Bible as you do.
 
Below are the current Bible studies being offered at Beautiful Savior.  Each Bible study is approximately 1 hour long and does not require you to be there every week.  Come as often as it fits your schedule. 
 
“A Simple Way to Pray
9:30 am Sundays
Leader: Pastor Chris
 
“End Times
7 pm Tuesdays
Leader: Pastor Chris
“Angels”
 – Women’s Bible Study –
9 am Thursdays
Leader: Shirley Elsner (Thursdays)

Having a hard time finding the time or the words to pray?  In this study, we will delve into Luther’s small and large catechisms as bottomless prayer treasure chests, or better stated, war chests, to help us do battle with the world, the devil and our sinful flesh.

God does not intend prayer as a chore or a means to appease Him.  He simply invites us to call upon Him in every need, to praise Him and give Him thanks.  Spend some time developing this lifelong refreshment and assurance that we, as God’s dear and beloved children, can always call upon our heavenly Father, who promises to hear us for Jesus’ sake.

Christians believe not only that the world had a beginning (creation) and a glorious middle (our Lord’s death and resurrection), but also that it will have an end.  The narratives of the Bible inspire us; the truths of our faith encourage us; but we long for the promised ending, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.  Without it, the Christian “story” makes no sense.  This study explores what the Bible has to say about the end times and what the divine Author has prepared, which is far greater than any of us could write or imagine, for His story ends in glory – the glory of Jesus’ return and the resurrection of God’s faithful into that glory forever.
Do angels really have wings?  Do they protect people from harm?  In eight Bible studies you will learn what the Bible really says about angels, including their service to God and their ministry to people.  Come and join the class and learn about Angels.
 
There is a fee of $7 to cover the cost of the book.
