Bible Study – Every Wednesday at 11 am

Pastor Ken’s Bible Study meets each Wednesday morning from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm.  The class is held in the conference room, while some folks join us via Zoom video-conferencing from the comfort of their own homes. We look at the Bible passages that will be used in worship the coming Sunday. Participants receive a handout in advance, in which a Lutheran teacher reflects on the texts.  No Biblical expertise is required of participants. And, we have fun while we learn! Send an email to for more information, or to request a Zoom invitation.

SAKLC Conversations – Thursdays 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

A Different Telling of Jesus and the Christmas Story

Have you read “The Infancy Gospel of Thomas”? How familiar are you with the “Proto Gospel of James”? Both have much to tell us about Mary and Joseph, plus they give us a new angle on the birth and early life of Jesus. Additionally, have you met Joachim and Anna?

Conversations, SAKLC’s mid-week adult scriptural study and discussion fellowship will be engaged during November exploring some interesting and informative ancient apocryphal documents.  Participants will likely gain many new insights into the Christmas stories traditionally read from the canonical gospels of Matthew and Luke.

The Infancy Gospel of Thomas is an apocryphal book dating to the earliest days of Christianity; it contains some truly amazing accounts about Jesus’ young life between the ages of 5 and 12. The Proto Gospel of James, depicts Mary’s husband, Joseph, in a new and much different light than seen in the customary gospels. Joachim and Anna are identified as the parents of Mary, the Mother of our Lord.

Distinguished Professor Dr. David Brakke (from The Ohio State University) will once again be our video lecturer in this Great Courses Plus presentation. Retired Pr. Herb Mohlenhoff, facilitator, promises some interesting sessions! Adult members and community friends are invited to join the fellowship of Conversations any Thursday, in Ogram Hall, 10:00 AM until 11:30 AM.

OASIS – Saturdays, 6 am until 8:30 am

Join our team of volunteers each Saturday morning, 6 am until 8:30 am, as we open the church  to walkers, runners and riders to rehydrate, use the restrooms, or simply cool down. The church’s location on this major training route, which has limited restroom and rehydration opportunities, makes this “ministry of presence” and a true oasis, a natural fit to solve a community need.

Qualifications for this assignment? A willingness to arise early, set up a few tables and signs, and provide a friendly greeting to some of the nicest and most highly disciplined and motivated area residents and visitors.

Contact Steve or Lynn Blackledge, Richard or Carol Elliot, or Kristen Bowman for more information. Or call the church office.

Walkers, runners and riders: Stop by if you happen to be training Saturday mornings. There is no obligation; your relief is our reward.
