BIBLE STUDIES

Sunday Adult Bible Study


Our adult Bible study on Sunday mornings is a journey through the short book of Titus. Located in the New Testament, this book is a letter from the Apostle Paul to his friend and understudy, Titus. Titus was a Greek Christian who was given the responsibility of setting up pastors in various churches along with his own teaching duties. This book gives us a great look at what it means to be church, and how our lives can reflect the healthy teaching of the Gospel!

Past Bible studies have included: The Book of Acts, Luther’s Small Catechism, Living with Resilient Joy, Hope in Times of Fear, and many others! To watch previous sessions in this study or in another series, browse Light of the Hills’ YouTube Channel.

Time & Location: 9:30-10:30 am in the Multipurpose Room

Children’s Sunday School

Ages Pre-K through 5th Grade are invited to join us as we work through our Enduring Faith curriculum, with a special emphasis this year on how God’s salvation story in the Old Testament points us to Jesus. We are proud to offer a strong, Bible-based curriculum here at Light of the Hills, with every class designed to share God’s love for us in Jesus and help children see the exciting role they have to play in God’s epic salvation story. We encourage parents to bring their children each week to our Sunday School opening upstairs in the education building, greet their child’s teacher, and join us for a time of song and prayer together before dismissal into Pre-K and elementary classrooms. You can rest easy knowing that all of our teachers have been vetted and undergone professional third-party background checks.

Children are also encouraged to bring loose change offerings each week to Sunday School, which are used to support two needy children – Biswa of East India and Nico of Indonesia, through Compassion International.

Time & Location: 9:30 am upstairs in the Conference Room of the Education Building for opening; Rooms 204 & 206 for class time.

Young Adult Bible Study

All young adults who have graduated High School are welcome to join this low-key group for regular Bible study, food, and fellowship!

Beginning May 10th, we’ll be reading Tim Keller’s book, The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith. The book looks at the parable of the Prodigal Son, but even if you’re familiar with this parable, you will see this parable in a new light, and will leave with fresh astonishment as you hear Jesus Himself reveal the heart of the Gospel! To request a book (provided at no cost) or for more information or directions, please contact Pastor Kyle @ pastor.weeks@loth.org.

Past studies have included: core discipleship practices (Being Lutheran), the role of sacrifices and the law in the Old vs. New Testaments, and more!
