Study & Support Groups

Men’s Fellowship Groups
Now in its 25th year, the Men’s Fellowship and Study Group meets Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. in Luther Hall to provide men of all ages with opportunities for spiritual growth, Christian fellowship, and learning from one another. With an emphasis on fellowship, study topics are selected by the group itself and have included the history and archaeology of the Bible, contemporary and historical religious issues, the thoughts and writings of significant religious thinkers and leaders, and a focus on our own thoughts and beliefs. We extend our impact through support of church youth, and related organizations like Lutheran Family Services. Come join us on Thursday mornings for a shared breakfast and good fellowship. The coffee pot is always on.
