Book of Faith Bible Study

Book of Faith Logo“Book of Faith” is an initiative of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America to engage Christians in thoughtful, deep, and consistent conversation with Holy Scripture.

As a “Book of Faith” congregation, Lutheran Church of Honolulu is committed to energizing our ministry and our mission by engaging scripture through study, prayer, conversation, music, and art. Examples of this commitment include devotions and study by the Congregational Council before each meeting, a weekly Book of Faith Bible Study, selection of worship music and anthems that help “tell the story” of the appointed Biblical readings, and lectionary-based preaching.

During the next year we are encouraging every ministry, committee, and task-force of the congregation to include the reading and study of scripture as part of their time together. Join us as we committ ourselves to fluency in the “first language of our faith”—Holy Scripture.

The Book of Faith Bible Study meets each Thursday at 10:00 AM in the Boardroom.
