Pella holds a Mid-Week Bible Study on Wednesday nights at 7:00PM. This study group has been a vital part of Pella's consistency and growth and a healthy percentage of the members of Pella participate. Currently the group is studying Paul's "Letter to the Romans." We went on hiatas on June 17th for the Summer, but will be returning to our studies in late August—beginning with Chapter 7.
& Adult Instruction
Pella provides instruction in the Lutheran faith through both confirmation
instruction for baptized members, and through baptism and adult
instruction for those who desire to become members. Please contact
the church office.
While prayer is a part of all our scheduled activities and daily
lives, it is also an important ministry that goes beyond those very
schedules and activities. Pella has an active member Prayer
Chain that routinely takes its members, friends and even strangers
needs to the Lord in prayer. In addition, there is also a Prayer
Warriors page on this Web site where prayer requests can be
found at almost any time. The prayers on the Prayer Warriors
page may not be a part of the regular prayer chain, so make
sure you review the prayer requests on this page
Ministry by members of Pella goes on each and every day in a number
of ways. As we continually review
our mission and ministry, we also look at many other opportunities for minstry
that could become a part of our vision as we move forward in mission:
Proclaiming Christ • Empowering Prayer • Making Disciples.
