Wednesday Night Ministries

Our Wednesday Night programs will return in September, for a fall session. Dinner will be served in The Kitchen from 5 – 6 p.m., and small groups are from 6 - 7 p.m., including nursery, children’s ministry, and adult Bible studies. 


Small Group Schedule
Children’s Ministry – The Sermon on the Mount 

Led by Lindsey Kurtz (PreK-1st), Ari Gehart (2nd-3rd), & Sarah Kolden (4th-6th) in the Education Center

Children on Wednesday nights take a deeper dive into the core tenets of our faith. This spring, PreK-1st will be studying the character of God, while 2nd-3rd and 4th-6th will each be learning from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Lessons and crafts are age-specific and fun.


Women’s Ministry – Risen Motherhood

Led by Kristi Siemsen & Dana Schmidt in the Living Room

Motherhood is a sacred responsibility that is both richly rewarding and profoundly challenging. Risen Motherhood is a book that brings the gospel to bear on the day-to-day work of being a mom. It addresses topics such as body image, school choices, family traditions and marriage. Join other women to read and discuss this thoroughly biblical and eminently practical book on motherhood.


Men’s Ministry – The Cost of Discipleship

Led by Pastor Garrett & Pastor Matt in Pastor Garrett’s Office

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor and theologian who was killed by the Nazi regime as WWII neared its end. His most popular book, The Cost of Discipleship, is a manifesto against what he considered a weak-willed, self-excusing approach to discipleship. It is also a profound commentary on what it means to live-out Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Join with other men to read and discuss this modern classic.


Upper Room Prayer – A Prayer Circle for Our Country, Community, & Church

Led by Hilde Ernsberger in the Choir Room (Upstairs)

Following dinner, spend 30 minutes in prayer for the well-being of our nation, the flourishing of our surrounding community, and the unity and fruitfulness of our church.


Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity – An Introduction to Liturgy

Led by Felicity Grover in the Conference Room

Have you ever wondered why we do what we do at worship? The historic liturgy is full of meaning, but this meaning is not always easy to recognize or understand. Learn to appreciate and benefit from the liturgy more fully by reading and discussing the book Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity.


The Gospel According to John – A Simple Bible-Study

Led by Paul Priesz in Room 12

John’s Gospel is one of the most theologically rich accounts of the life and teachings of Christ. Martin Luther once said that Christians should read it – in its entirety! – every single week. Join this simple Bible-study as they conclude the last portion of the gospel by Jesus’ “beloved disciple,” John.
