Emmanuel offers Sunday and weekday classes based in scripture and centered in Christ. Our adult Bible-study program is designed to help us better know and understand the Bible, strengthen our relationship with God and one another, and give us hope and courage for daily living.

Winter Class Schedule

- Enter LUTHER’S TWO KINGDOMS—The Kingdom of Faith and The Kingdom of Everything Else—and discover which you belong to.
- Hear the voice of God speaking in a sermon called THE BOOK OF HEBREWS.
- (For men) Meet, pray, and study together as you get to know other men of the church in MEN'S BOOK AND BIBLE STUDY.
- Find out what Lutheran believe and why—in LUTHERAN CHRISTIANITY.

A winter brochure with schedule and room locations for adult, Sunday school, confirmation, and youth classes is available in Ebenezer Hall.
