Riverview Bible Studies

 

CIVIL GOVERNMENT

Mondays at 1:00 pm
Thursday at 6:30 pm

Led by Pastor Belter
 

Elections, protests, demonstrations, a pandemic, an increasingly polarized political system. How does a Christian live and serve as a citizen of a spiritual kingdom and a political nation? What rights and roles has God given to each "kingdom"? What rights and roles has God given to us within those "kingdoms"? This Bible study, offered twice (Mondays at 1:00 pm and Thursdays at 6:30 pm), seeks answers from God's Word to guide our lives as citizens of both kingdoms.
 


LIving Out our Lutheran Identity

1st & 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 6:30 pm
Led by Pastor Wagner
 

What does it mean to live as a confessional Lutheran in today's world? How do we live out our calling and mission in an increasingly post-Christian culture? What should a Christ-centered ministry look like today? These questions are some that were addressed in a series of thought-provoking presentations at the 2020 WELS National Conference on Lutheran Leadership. Pastor Wagner will lead a discussion of several of these presentations in this Bible study. Participants will be asked to view the video online before attending and then come to discuss, dig deeper, and apply what we learn. Come for one, several, or all of the weeks. Each session's topic will be previewed and a link provided below. Bring a friend and join us!

September 15 - Finding Our Voice
Creatives often mention “finding your voice”—the characteristics that make you uniquely yourself—and then owning that voice in your work. In our mission as the mouth of God, the Church speaks to the world. What is the unique voice of our congregation and our synod? How can we own our voice in our Christian lives and in the work of the Church?

October 6 - One-by-One: Revitalizing a Congregation
Pastor David Rosenau has a gift for telling great stories, and he has a great story to tell. Through the story of his journey through life and ministry, he shows the power of God's Word to change lives for hear and for eternity. The power of the Word means the hard part of our mission is taken care of. Now how do we connect many more people to his life changing Word? The answers are simple. But keeping things simple requires hard work, a clear sense of purpose, and a commitment to keeping the mission of the church as the mission of the church. â€‹
