The mission of the Adult ministry at St. Michael’s is to help people grow and be transformed in their faith in Jesus Christ, to equip them for service through His Word and the Holy Spirit so that we have unity in the Body of Christ, to become a witness to those around us.
…to prepare God’s people for God’s works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. -Ephesians 4:12-14

Sundays: Pastor’s 10:45 am class on “Two Realms – living in two kingdoms” in-house and zoom class. Meets downstairs starting Aug. 30– Oct. 25. What does it mean to be a citizen of heaven and also to live responsibly in our world? What role do politics and civics play in our calling from Christ? Join this in depth study each Sunday to learn more. We will cover Christian history, Biblical worldview, Christ and Culture, and Luther’s insight on the Two Realms.
Tuesdays: Women’s Evening Bible Study starts Sept. 15, 6:45 to 8 pm. “Trustworthy” is a 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings.

No in-house meeting. Imagine if your life were to be written by four different people to four different audiences from four different perspectives with four different angles on your life.
