WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.

 

welcaPurpose of WELCA:   As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Married4Life

Married4Life is an opportunity for you to intentionally care for something we often hope will take care of itself:

                                                                OUR MARRIAGE

          In this small group ministry, couples gather monthly with other couples

ido.jpg

to care for your relationship in a time frame designed specifically

for the two of you with no distractions.

 

 

Marriage Care is…

* An informal, conversational meeting with other couples.

* The chance to enrich your relationship and grow in your marriage.

* A time to express what you value about each other and what sometimes makes you stumble.

 

Marriage Care is not

             * A substitute for therapy

             * In-depth Training

             * Just another social group

 

Interested in being a part of this group? Contact the church office at 701-225-6747. 

                                                                                                    

Marriage Care is a ministry developed by Bill and Anita Smith at Luther Seminary, and is used by several congregations as well as seminary students and spouses.

 

Adult Education

Learning in Service to Christ ~

Throughout the school year, an Adult Education class is held between Sunday worship services, from 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. A variety of education is offered. Occasionally there is a speaker from the community or from a ministry outside of Dickinson. This is also a time for Adult Bible Study or a deeper look at the gospel reading for that day.

 

This group is attended by men and women of varying ages. You can come for one session, or several – it is a “walk-in” class. Everyone is welcome in the Fellowship Room on the main floor of the church building for this interesting and informal group! The coffee and tea are always hot ~ and we occasionally enjoy homemade treats!

 

 Bible Studies ~

The St. John Men’s Breakfast Bible Study meets each week at Perkins on Friday mornings at 6:30 am. Men of all ages are encouraged to drop in. Check the church calendar for any changes to this schedule. This informal group has a great time sharing a meal, discussing topics and growing deeper in their faith as they study the bible.

 

Several small groups of ladies gather on a monthly basis to grow deeper in their faith as they dig into different topics in the Bible and enjoy fellowship together. If you are interested in joining a group, please contact the church office to get more information about these groups and when they meet.

 

Theology on Tap ~

 It's no secret that Martin Luther enjoyed a pint or two with his friends. As he ate and drank with his friends in Wittenberg, Luthr had many conversations about God, life, the Bible and faith. Theology on Tap is inspired by the founders of our faith. This informal group meets monthly (last Tuesday of the month @ 7:00 pm) to have conversations on various topics such as "God in Sports", "Decoding Denominations", and "Angels". Various venues are utilized in Dickinson, and it is not exclusive to Lutherans. Everyone is welcome for this fun and enlightening discussion.
