Adult Ministries

Community is often the best place for spiritual growth. Through small group relationships with people from many different backgrounds, experiences and understandings, we can come together, challenge one another, and enrich each other’s lives.

As a church community, we often meet for events, bible studies, retreats, to meet needs in the community, and sometimes just to spend time together. Most of our groups are open to everyone, but we also offer separate Men’s and Women’s ministries to allow a space for conversations and support for some of the unique challenges that we all face.

Monday Morning Women's Book Study

Monday mornings from 9:30-11:00 for friendship and great conversation! Join us as we immerse ourselves in the Psalms beginning May 6th and Imagine a life of true happiness, a life of complete honesty with God.

People of Faith Book Club

If you are looking for a warm, friendly place to discuss great Christian books with friends, you will love our book club, People of Faith Book Club for Everyone.

We will meet once a month for Coffee, Tea and Donuts and share lively discussion on Christian fiction and non-fiction books. The discussion will take place from 7-9PM the third (3rd) Wednesday of each month at Saron Lutheran Church.

Each month we’ll share:

  • Discussions on the book and characters
  • How the content applies to your spiritual life
  • A fun freebie about the book (bookmarks, word searches, crossword puzzles, worksheets, and overviews, etc.)

We’ll also learn a little about the authors and many book selections will also include a study guide for deeper insight.  All activities are optional.

Books can be borrowed from a friend or the library or purchased.  When possible, we’ll offer discounts on the book selections.

July we will be reading and discussing, Pilgrim’s Progress! The Pilgrim's Progress from This World, to That Which Is to Come is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature, has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print

Pilgrim's Progress is a great work of Christian literature. Originally composed in the 17th century, this spiritual allegory has entertained and delighted innumerous readers for over 300 years. Part I tells of "Christian" and his journey to "Celestial City;" Part II tells of the journey of Christian's wife Christiana and their children to Celestial City. The two parts work together as a unified whole, which describes and depicts the believer's life and struggles. Indeed, given the easy style of the book, readers of all ages can understand the spiritual significance of the depictions in the story. However, Pilgrim's Progress does not simply instruct readers with spiritual allegories; it entertains them as well, through Bunyan's creative story telling. Enjoyable and spiritually instructive, Pilgrim's Progress is highly recommended.

If you are interested in participating please contact Ardy Prekker at biggamehunter50@msn.com or office@saron.org

The book discussion will be on July 17th.

 

 

 

 

Sisters of Saron

The Sisters of Saron, or SOS, is open to women of all ages. We meet on the last Sunday of every month at 6:00 p.m. We enjoy coming together for special events, bible studies, prayer, good food, crafts, retreats, and special activities.

Paul wrote the letter of 1st Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow Jesus and only Jesus. In this twelve-part series, author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen walks into the messy lives of the Corinthians and takes us through Paul’s works to the conflicted church.
