Join a Bible Study
New Member / Catechism Class
Pastor Poock teaches an eight-week Catechism Class open to anyone who would like to become a member of Faith Lutheran Church, as well as anyone wanting to review the Small Catechism again. Learning the catechism was never intended to be an activity limited to 7th and 8th grade! Luther wrote the catechism for all ages and declared that though he was a doctor of theology, he would always remain a student of the catechism. Let us follow his example!
Please contact the Church office at 941-776-1395 if you are interested in attending the next session that will begin on October 13 and meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm.
Sunday Morning Bible Studies
This class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. in the Great Hall. Each week the Scripture readings for that Sunday will be discussed in depth and questions about them will be answered. Adults and high school age students are included in this class. A free will offering is collected to benefit pastoral students at the Concordia Seminary.
Virtual Bible Studies
Pastor Poock is currently presenting a study of the Book of Psalms via recorded YouTube videos. Each week he discusses one Psalm using Reading the Psalms with Luther as the study guide. These videos are available on the Church’s YouTube channel at the following link: Faith Lutheran Church YouTube Channel
Wednesday Bible Studies
Pastor Poock usually leads a Bible Study on Wednesday afternoons at 3:30 pm. But this group is taking a break over the summer. Watch for notices on when it will resume in the fall.
Thursday Afternoon Bible Studies
Elder Don Lannon leads a Thursday Afternoon Bible Study in the Great Hall at 2:00 pm. This group is currently taking a break.
Faith Lutheran Friends LifeLight Bible Study Group
Led by Elder Roy Heflin, DCE, this small group Bible study meets on the third Friday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Sun City Center area at the Heflin home. If you are interested in joining this Bible study, contact Roy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The small group also has been gathering for social events such as dinner out at a local restaurant to get to know one another even more and deepen their Christian fellowship. The group has also enjoyed cool ice cream treats on hot summer evenings while sitting socially distanced outside the Heflin home.
