Jesus promised: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”(John 8:31). 

Throughout the week at Shepherd of the Lake, there are several opportunities for growth in an understanding of the Holy Scriptures. Please consider joining us.

Adult Education Opportunities:

  • Sunday Morning Bible Study meets at 8:30 a.m. each week.

  • Wednesday Morning Bible Study meets at 9:30 a.m. each week.  Come and join us as we study “The Augsburg Confession”

  • Sunday School:  At Shepherd of the Lake we recognize the importance of helping your child know, love, and follow Jesus. On Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. during the school year, we offer an age-appropriate setting for your child’s faith development. It is our goal to support the parents and child, and to create a space for the children to enter into a deeper relationship with Christ and one another.

Junior Confirmation: 

  • During the first of this two-year course, confirmands will receive an overview of Holy Scripture.  We will be using a text entitled “My Journey in Faith.”

  • During the second year of this course leading toward Confirmation, confirmands will study Luther’s Small Catechism using a text entitled “Lutheran Catechesis.” Confirmands will also be asked to produce a final project, as well as attend a Confirmation retreat at Lutheran Island Camp.

Adult Instruction:

  • Please contact Pastor Petersen to schedule a time for adult instruction if you are interested in learning more about Lutheran Christianity, would benefit from a review, or would like to join our congregation.

  • We use a text entitled “Above All Else” along with a number of other resources.
