  • Personal and Powerful: The role of prayer in our lives in Christ

    Prayer is a vital part of our relationship with God — a response of faith that trusts in God’s promises. Join us for this eight-session series as we explore what prayer is, ways to pray, what it means to have a life of prayer, and how we can seek "still spaces" in our lives. Together, let's learn about the gift of this spiritual discipline that helps us grow in faith, love, and obedience to God.   

FOCUS: Foundation Bible Class gets its name from the truth that Christ is our foundation in all things. The study focuses on exploring how our foundation in Christ transforms who we are, and how we live our lives. Open discussion and questions from participants are actively encouraged. 

Previous study topics have included: change, community, the Sabbath, Godly leadership, racial inequality, Heaven, gossip, angels and demons, wrestling with God, Bible translations, comparative religion, church/state, and mercy.

SUNDAY MORNINGS 9:30-10:30 a.m.

LOCATION: School gym

DATES: September to May

Join us for an in-depth study of the Letter to the Hebrews, led by Rev. Dr. David Smith. 

The Letter to Hebrews was written to encourage Christians in a time of trial, by focusing on the absolute supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus Christ. While God spoke in the past “many times and in many ways,” he has now spoken to us “by his Son,” Jesus Christ. In this class we’ll explore how, in our faith and in our everyday living, we should imitate the example of Christ. (Lutheran Study Bible; CPH)

Listen to the Bible study broadcast live each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. on KFUO 850AM radio in the St. Louis region. Outside of St. Louis, listen live online at
