    Join Pastor Kate as we study the history and people of ancient Israel, based on a course by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman of Oberlin College


    We all have associations with the word “Israel”—a modern-day nation in the Middle East that makes up part of the biblical Holy Land. But how did ancient Israel emerge? Who were the Israelites and where did they come from? What was it like to live in biblical Israel? We'll also consider how the very meaning of the word “Israel” evolved throughout the Hebrew Bible and has changed through history.

    This 4-week series is an opportunity to explore your questions about being people of God in the world today. Feel free to come to 1 or all the sessions.

    • Do you have basic questions about being Lutheran?
    • Feel that everyone else seems to know more about worship, faith, God, etc.?
    • Wonder how to deepen your faith?
    • Curious to try some "spiritual practices" or see what that might look like for you? What about with a spouse or partner who isn't Christian?
    • Looking to understand or reimagine your job/career as a called vocation?

    What other questions do you have? Join other curious minds and let's jump into the exploration!

About Bible Study

Ages: Adults (Youth Bible study happens in the context of Sunday School and Confirmation classes.)


Typical schedule: Multi-week sessions several times each year:

Thursdays, 11 AM - Noon


We hold Bible studies throughout the year, typically in small group format, usually alternating study between an Old Testament and New Testament book. Pastor Kate or Vicar Amy lead the classes, which are informal in nature with time for checking in with each other, reading and discussion. Often there is a brief video to accompany the study.


Recent studies have included:

All are welcome to join in at any time and it's okay if you can’t attend every class, need to leave early or arrive late. Nonmembers are welcome!
