“Giving in Gratitude"
Discipleship Bible Study
October 11 & 25th; November 1 & 8

This is a four week study and a key spiritual growth opportunity in our First, We Give of Ourselves emphasis. We will consider God’s giving, how blessed we are as God’s people, and how we receive and delight in God’s gifts. You can participate by joining in the discussion in the Fellowship Hall Sunday mornings at 11am. We will meet Oct 11th & 25th and Nov 1st & 8th. The study can be used by other committees and Bible studies as a devotional as well.

Diakonia Class
This diakonia program is a two-year process of spiritual formation and theological education for baptized members of the ELCA or anyone wishing in good faith to study these teachings. This process occurs in three basic ways: 1) by thorough grounding in the classic seminary disciplines of practical, systematic, historical and Biblical theology; 2) by identifying particular skills and aptitudes in ministry and encouraging their use in the local parish; 3) by providing spiritual growth through worship, retreats, and s supportive community of fellow students, mentors, and instructors. The courses are taught by pastors and/or lay professionals particularly skilled in that area of instruction or ministry. The diakonia courses combine theological knowledge with practical skills. Students are encouraged to work at their own level of theological knowledge, academic training and experience in ministry. If you have any questions please give me, Larry Cording a call at 815-777-2636 and I will answer your questions.
