Adult Education Opportunities


Adult Forum

Pastor Erica leads the Adult Forum on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15. The focus of the lesson each Sunday is the text(s) for the day and will provide a forum for people to participate in a kind of Sermon Rewind/Preview (depending upon which service they attend). The group will reflect on the lesson(s) read in worship and offer responses to the sermon. Sound like fun? Join us!!

Bethel Bible Study Is Coming!

It’s the Most Demanding Study You’ll Ever Love:

Two Years, 66 Books, 40 Critical Concepts.

Beginning in January 2012!

Are you searching for something more or life-changing in your faith? Consider the Bethel Series, a deep dive into the Bible that transforms meaning, ignites deeper faith, and creates more informed and knowledgeable followers of Christ.

This disciplined, intensive study will meet weekly for two years beginning in January 2012. Led by The Rev. Doctor Bruce Hanstedt (retired pastor, First Lutheran Church, and Instructor at the East Central Synod’s Lay School of Ministry) and

Kim Bremer (Lay School and Bethel grad), the Bethel Series is ideal for searchers, scholars, even sometime-skeptics who are hungry for a greater Biblical foundation. Developed by an ELCA pas-tor, the Bethel studies reflects our synod’s beliefs while offering a universal appeal that is crossing denomination-al lines.

Why Bethel:

Bethel can help you:

Understand God’s word more deeply and completely than you ever have

Connect the total narrative of God’s "big picture", not just bits and news bytes

Wrestle with complexity, contradiction and mystery

Gain insights into the context, history and cultural outlook that shape each book

Explore critical old testament texts that shed new light on Jesus’ teaching

Develop the confidence and freedom of an informed faith that sets the stage for service to the church and world


The Bethel Series is open to Manitowoc Cluster churches, friends and spouses, including those from other faith traditions. The Bethel Series is ideal for anyone seeking deep, complete Biblical knowledge.

However, it is intense: participants can anticipate out-of-class reading and

assignments equal to a college class.


Faith Lutheran Church, Valders, in the Fellowship Hall

Beginning January, running 2012 to 2013

Tuesday evenings weekly from 6:30 through 8:30, with summer break.
