All Saints is studying God's Word together 

All Saints is using the D6 teaching resources. It is an intergenerational discipleship curriculum that lays emphasis on daily devotions and living according to God's will. It is based on Deuteronomy 6:4-7. We have been using D6 in our Sunday school for a couple of years and many of our current Bible study groups are using it as well.

If you would like to study D6 material together with your friends, neighbors or church family, you can!

  • Please contact Marjaana to get your teaching resources, if you want to have a group of your own.
  • Join one of the church groups studying D6:
    • Pastor's online group in All Saints FB page Wednesday 10:30am resumes in January,
    • Marjaana and Jani's group in their home on Thursday 7pm, or
    • Eben's group for women on Sundays at 9:30am.

 More information on D6 at All Saints: Contact Pastor or Marjaana.

Being in God's Word

Our vision is that every person attending the All Saints Lutheran Church would also be a part of a Bible study group. We offer Bible study groups of different kinds both during the week and on Sunday. 

We provide two church-wide study sessions a year for you to study together with your family, friends and groups of believers. This year we did the Red Letter Challenge (by Zach Zehnder) during Lent.

The Bible study groups usually come together once a week in homes, at the church, or via screens to study God’s Word. The materials and structure for studying together is provided by the church but group leaders have a lot of freedom in how the group session will look like. In addition to studying, the groups also provide prayer support and fellowship. Studying the Word together is a perfect opportunity to learn to know God and fellow believers more deeply. It can be like a family that supports you in your faith walk and helps out at times of trouble.

To attend a Bible study you don’t have to be knowledgeable about the Bible – the whole point is to learn and grow together. This form of fellowship works for new and mature Christians alike.


Why study the Bible?

There can be no true and lasting life change apart from the Word of God. See the story of Lydia from Acts 16. She heard the Word and the Holy Spirit opened her heart to understand. After hearing Paul share the Gospel message, she received Christ as her Savior. Her faith was born through the hearing of the Word! Too often we allow the secular distractions of life to rob us of our time with God. Take time to be in His Word today! 

"In John 17, Jesus prayed for the disciples. He prayed for God to Sanctify the disciples, to set them apart for His service. How was this to happen? John 17:17 tells us: the truth, Gods very Word, would do it. The more we focus on biblical truth, the more it will work within us to make us fit for God's work."
