Sunday Adult Bible Study

Beginning on January 9th, our adult Bible study will be working through some of the major concepts in Timothy Keller’s book, Hope in Times of F: The Resurrection and the Meaning of Easter. When we talk about our hope as Christians, we often have trouble seeing how that future hope affects our present life, especially when we’re faced with fear. Join us as we explore the truth: that the hope given us in Jesus Christ extends to far more of our life and world than we often realize, and that in the resurrection we are provided with the only true antidote to fear. Whether you’re a lifelong Lutheran or just curious about Christianity, this book is sure to grow your understanding of the Bible and of Jesus!

Past Bible studies have included: The Book of Acts, Luther’s Small Catechism, Living with Resilient Joy, 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 am in the Sanctuary.

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.

Sunday High School Bible Study – Walking with the Word

Currently, our High School students are studying the role of prayer in the Christian life. What does the Bible say about prayer? How are we supposed to pray? Does God answer prayers? What’s the use in praying if I don’t get what I asked for? We’ll talk about all of these questions and more in this honest and rewarding study!

Time & Location: 9:30 am upstairs in the Youth Room of the Education Building.
