Prince of Peace has a variety of opportunities throughout the year for adults to grow in their relationship with Jesus and with other adults. Opportunities include Bible studies, video studies, book studies and spiritual practices. Opportunities are usually held on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
During the months of January, February, and the first part of March (Epiphany to Transfiguration), we will be joining ELCA churches from across the country in the “Why Jesus?” project. The “Why Jesus?” project was created by ELCA pastors, youth directors, worship leaders and musicians. They conceived this idea because they are discovering that while we may know the Biblical stories, know that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, we don’t really know how to articulate for ourselves and for other people who exactly is this divine-human person named Jesus. And what exactly does Jesus mean to our own personal lives and the lives of others. How is believing in Jesus transforming? All of these are fundamental questions that we all ask.
We will be using the theme of “Why Jesus?” to study the Gospel of Matthew through Easter in worship, Facebook, adult and youth education time, and mini-Bible study podcast each week. All are welcome to participate in all or any of these opportunities.
