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

WINTER CLASSES BEGIN ON DECEMBER 2

- 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.
- Learn about Advent preparations you can make and do at home.
- (For men) Meet, pray, and study together as you get to know other men of the church.

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