Young adults, please join us as we study the book of James using the ‘Sword Method’. Each week we will read a chapter ahead of time and use the ‘Sword Method’ on Sunday to better understand what the passage says to do, what not to do, who man is, who God is, and lastly how we take these things into the week. We look forward to seeing you there!

Both In-Person & Virtual Class
Room 201 @ 10:15am – 11:15am
Led by Bill Fischer

Description:
The Gospel of Mark is the shortest of the four Gospels and is thought to be the first one written. It tells the story of Jesus Christ from the foretelling of John the Baptiser through Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven. There is less detail than in the gospels of Matthew, Luke or John and it has a feeling of urgency in telling the good news. The word “immediately” appears many times.

Join us either in person at Trinity or remotely through Zoom as Mark introduces Jesus to the world as both God and Man and the salvation for all people.

About The Leader:
Bill Fischer is a Lutheran trained teacher and has been leading a Bible study at Trinity since 2009.

Who Is Welcome?
This study is a Bible based discussion oriented class and is ideal for individuals who have a basic knowledge of Christianity and some familiarity with the Bible. It’s not necessary to be a Trinity member or even Lutheran and visitors are always warmly welcomed.

Both In-Person & Virtual Class
Room 205 @ 10:15am – 11:15am

Led by Jim Cleary

Description:

Limping with God: When we look to the Bible for role models in our daily discipleship, Jacob doesn’t come readily to mind.  He’s a trickster, a liar, and selfish. He also leads a dysfunctional family rife with jealousy and backstabbing. But Jacob is also Israel, the namesake of the Old Testament community of God, chosen and blessed. As such, this sinner-saint, who limps along with the Lord, burdened by weakness and beset by problems, is the mirror image of all of us who follow Jesus. Discussion-oriented.

About The Leader:
Jim Cleary is the husband of Pat, dad to Catie, Tim and Jack, and very happily, grandpa to Oliver. He and Pat have been members of Trinity since 1992. He is a graduate of Texas A&M University and the University of Virginia School of Law. He is a partner in the law firm of Martin, Disiere, Jefferson & Wisdom, L.L.P.

Who Is Welcome?
This class is geared to all, from new believer to seasoned disciple.

In Person Class
Room 124 @ 10:15am – 11:15am
Led by John Reisig

Description:
In this study, each Sunday offers a single stand alone topic. The material covered each week will provide a meaningful experience for regular participants, visitors to Trinity Downtown, and for those simply looking to get back into a routine of attending Bible study. The single topic format insures that no one will be lost or feel behind during the study, and will feel welcome and encouraged to attend at any time. Bibles will be provided and utilized each week. Providing historical context to the scriptural message, and modern application of His word, the Bible will “Come Alive,” and show that God has been working throughout history, and is still working today out of love for His people.

About The Leader:
John and his wife Janice are both trained Lutheran school teachers and all four of their children are graduates of Lutheran High North here in Houston.

In Person Class
Room 206 @ 10:15am – 11:15am
Led by Thomas DeVries and Anthony Flaviani

Description:
The Church is Christ’s perfect bride, until you involve people. As soon as Christ left the Earth, that’s what happened and over the next 2,000 years we have jumped from one controversy or heresy to the next; dividing ourselves along the way. Each week will be a stand-alone lesson on a controversy starting with the book of Acts and moving towards the present day. Learn from their mistakes not only as a church, but as individuals in our own lives and our own controversies

Who Is Welcome?
This study is interactive and provides facilitated discussion. This is a wonderful study for new Christians as well as seasoned disciples.
