Learning & Faith Formation

Continued learning is essential to grow your relationship with God. At Bergstrasse we strive to provide for learning in person or online via ZOOM. Learning strengthens us so that we can better serve our neighbor and God with abundant love.

A few of our Learning Opportunities

Bible or Book Studies - specific books of the Bible, or books of local interest that stimulate engagement for a building a sustaining community of hope.

"Inspired" a fresh look at scripture, by Rachel Held Evans

"This is God's Table: Finding Church beyond the Walls", creating community in non-traditional settings, by Anna Woofenden

"Dear Church", a challenging love letter to the ELCA on racism in America with encouragement to the church to take a lead to dismantle systemic racism, by Lenny Duncan

2023 Fall Book Study, led by Pastor Darla Bair

This volume leads us through seven weeks of exploring the natural world with clear eyes, open ears, and a sensitive heart, as we encounter God in new places.  The subtitle is Cultivating Wonder and Gratitude through Intimacy with Nature.  Join us as we combine inspirational prose, scripture, blessings and weekly challenges to remind ourselves that God first appeared to us in the natural world.
