Bible Studies and Small Groups

Interested in joining a Bible study or small group? There are groups meeting almost every day of the week! Check out the opportunities for growing in your relationship with God and/or others. At St. Philip, it is part of our mission that we grow in our relationship with God and each other as a community of faith. Bible studies and small groups are such a great way to get to know people, have real conversations, care for one another, support one another and truly get to know God more as we develop a stronger and closer relationship with God. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the church office at 303-979-4491, Pastor Brad at bdoty@stphilip-co.org. or Deacon Korra at klooschen@sphilip-co.org.
 

Sundays

Adult Faith Formation: Discussion on the ELCA Social Statements

Deacon Korra and Pastor Brad will be leading a discussion on the ELCA Social Statements for the adult faith formation hour on Sunday mornings from 10:15-11:15am. There will be a couple of guest speakers coming to speak on the topics and share their perspectives. Adult Faith Formation meets in Ministry Center rooms 4/5. We hope you will join us in these conversations. In preparation for these conversations, we invite you read the social statements ahead of time. All of the social statements are posted on the ELCA website.
 
As we come together, we will learn, listen and discuss. This time is not set up to be a debate. Please bring an open mind and be willing to listen to people who have a different perspective or understanding than you. As a reminder, we come together in unity in our faith in Christ, but we are not all unified in our beliefs; especially on topics regarding politics. We hope you will join us in these conversations to learn more about the ELCA.

Wednesday Night Women’s Bible Study-

Are you wanting to spend time with other ladies and understand how the Bible relates to your life today? Join Deacon Korra on Wednesday evenings to explore, “The Good and Beautiful Bible Study; Experiencing stories from the Bible and what it means for our lives today.” Explore a bible story, its key themes, and how it relates to our lives today.

The first gathering will be Wednesday, October 4th at 6:00 p.m. and continue every Wednesday following through mid-December. We will meet in MC 1. Bring a bible, your dinner if needed or a snack to share and an open heart.

Confirmation

Confirmation classes are typically for students in 7th and 8th grades and then complete the confirmation program in 9th grade when they affirm their baptism on Reformation Sunday, the last Sunday of October. With that being said, any student who would like to attend confirmation and get confirmed are welcome to join us! Confirmation classes meet every Wednesday from 6-8pm. Dinner is provided at 6pm, confirmation class meets from 6:30 to 7:45pm, and we end the evening with worship time from 7:45 to 8pm.
 
Confirmation is a time for these youth to connect with one another, learn about God and learn about the Bible. This is done through stories, conversations, arts and crafts, and more. We have tried to make confirmation fun for the youth as they learn about God, the Bible and get to know each other. We use a curriculum called Echo the Story to teach the Bible and the whole story to the youth.
 

Contact Melinda Svenkerud for more information.

 

Sr. High Youth Group

Sr. High Youth Group is open to all students in 9-12th grade. Youth group is on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm. We begin with a meal with the confirmation students at 6:00pm and then move to the youth room where we have a devotion, a time to connect by sharing highs and lows and play fun games.
