"The Bible is the cradle wherein Christ is laid."
- Martin Luther
Do you desire Christ to encounter you? When the scriptures are opened to us, God is given the opportunity to speak to us and shape our lives. The Bible bears Christ to us, and we encounter his good news whenever we read and study the words on the page.
Anyone is welcome to any of our studies. Come, find out what we have to offer, and study the Bible with us!
Throughout the year, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church offers a number of opportunities to study the scriptures and explore our faith together. You are invited to be a part of any of them. Here are some examples of past study opportunities:

Bible Study In Your Home
You do not need a degree to study the bible. Follow this simple Bible Study with a group of friends, or use it to reflect and journal. Either way, you will be shaped by God through the encounter.
Choose any scripture passage or story from the Bible and following these steps:
Before you begin, ask everyone to share their joys and then share their sorrows from the week.
1. Read any Bible passage/story twice while everyone listens.
2. Ask: “What word or idea pops out at you?” “Why?”
3. Someone else reads it again.
4. Ask: “Where do you see human nature in this passage?”
5. Someone else reads it again.
6. Ask: “What does this passage say about God and what God cares about?
7. Someone else reads it again.
8. Ask: “What is God trying to say to us in this passage?”
(If it is a story, choose one of the characters, tell everyone to envision they are that character, read the bible story again, and then ask: “What was your experience as that character?”)
You will be surprised at how moving this simple form of bible study can be. In addition, no one needs to be an expert to lead or participate in the study.
