Lutherans In Fellowship & Evangelism
“Acknowledging that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Divine Head of the Church, and desiring in our day to follow and serve Him, we dedicate ourselves to the furtherance of His Kingdom, by a stewardship of life and service, to the glory of the Triune God.”
Statement of Faith and Purpose, 1987
Lord Jesus - Our Hope, Our Future
“Fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart;
For consider what great things He has done for you."
1 Samuel 12:24
My Hope is Built on Nothing Less
We have chosen NOT to be a separate entity unto ourselves. Therefore, we are governed by the constitution of The AALC and have at least one clergy representative on our Commission to safeguard the theological correctness of our Bible studies. We never want to state unknowingly anything that would be contrary to our belief that the BIBLE is truly the divinely inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God.
Each year Women of L.I.F.E. leadership or AALC Pastors have written Bible studies using a 12 month format. Some groups study together monthly, others meet weekly with the same study at their pace. There is a study guide to facilitate discussion and for clarification and correct Biblical answers.
Current and past studies, along with leader guides are available by contacting our Materials Resource Coordinators, Neoma Yount and Mary Jose at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Elk Grove CA (916) 689-7300.
2018 Bible Study
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. . . . When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? . . . .
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:1, 3-4,
The 2018 Bible Study In His Image was written by Laurie (Dapelo) O'Brien, with the assistance of several ladies from the congregation of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Elk Grove. Books will be printed upon receipt of each order and will be delivered in a timely fashion. St. Peter's, Elk Grove CA has graciously offered once again to do the printing. We appreciate their generosity and assistance with the printing of our studies. We pray that this study will be a blessing to you and all who participate.

All confirmed women of The AALC are members of The American Association of Lutheran Churches’ Women of L.I.F.E. It is recognized that some women will serve in areas of Christian service other than the Women’s Commission and congregation circles. Women who serve in the congregation in such areas as: Choir, Sunday School, Altar Guild, Cradle Roll etc. are still a part of The AALC Women of L.I.F.E. It is recognized that some women, because of small children, handicapped, aged or infirmed members of the family may not be able to take responsibilities in other Christian service, at least for awhile. ALL women of the congregation beyond confirmation age; however, ARE the concern of The AALC Women of L.I.F.E. and should be considered in planning.
