Basic Bible Teachings

Basic Bible Teachings is specifically designed to teach the basics of the Christian Faith, as found in Luther’s Small Catechism, in easy-to-understand terms and in a highly visual format. This is a great opportunity for young adults or adults who are new to the faith and Lutherans looking for a refresher. We will walk through the five chapter of our study guide as we look at ourselves and our lives in the framework below:

 

 

  • Living with Expectations

  • Living with Jesus as Savior

  • Living as God’s Child

  • Living the Christian Life

  • Living Forever with Jesus

 

Second and Fourth Tuesdays of Month, 5:30 p.m., in the Library, beginning January 9

The Book of Romans

In the Book Romans Paul teaches us how we are made right with God – how we can be reconciled to God and transformed into the people He means us to be. No other Biblical book illumines so many classic life-changing truths—sin, salvation, grace, death and resurrection. Through this study you will gain a firm under-standing of the book—its historical context, purpose, structure and meaning. You will learn to apply its relevant teaching and wisdom to needs and issues you are currently working through. And you will acquire personal study skills that will enable you to return to Romans on your own so that you can continue to dig deeper into its life-transforming truths.

A Man Named Martin Part 2

2017 marked the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. As a forlorn sinner feeling lost and desperate before a stern and exacting Judge, Martin Luther despaired of all hope for eternity. But as one who came to cling to the Spirit-delivered truths of justification by faith and the liberty believers experience by God’s grace, he rebounded to become a triumphant ambassador for the Gospel.

This series will examine the semi-Scriptural and oft-times unethical teachings and doctrines of the Medieval Church and how Luther addressed them. From purgatory, penance, and indulgences to the treasury of merits of Christ, Masses for the dead, and the institution of the Papacy, Luther—and other like-minded reformers—had a misinformation overload on their hands.
