Bible Study Invitation

Join a Bible Study Class Today!

WHY ATTEND A BIBLE CLASS? Christians cannot expect to resist the values of the unbelieving world if they devote only one hour of the week to meditating on God's Word and the other 167 hours to providing for the needs of their bodies and enjoying worldly entertainment. We need to regularly search the Scriptures with fellow Christians. We need to recognize the important of regular family devotions and personal Bible study. We need to cultivate the habit of remembering and applying the truths of God's Word when we are confronted with temptations or faced with decisions in daily life. God's children will find their greatest joy and satisfaction in studying His Word and thinking about it day and night"
(Psalms: Part One, People's Bible Commentary, 42). God's Word is a "change agent" and being a part of a Bible class can be an important part of your spiritual well-being. Please give prayerful consideration to participating in one of the Sunday morning classes. Classes are available throughout the week covering a wide range of topics.

FOUR BOOKS THAT CHANGED THE CHURCH
June 11—August 13 (no classes July 2, 30)
Instructor: Rev. Dennis McFadden
Location: Ebenezer Hall, Lower Level
In 1520, the year of his threatened excommunication, Martin Luther penned four books that shook the world and changed history. We will examine his writings "On Good Works," "To the German Nobility," "The Babylonian Captivity of the Church," and "The Freedom of the Chris-tian" in a Reformation Anniversary series this summer.

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (of which Emmanuel is a member) offers an online daily devotion series. You may read this devotion by clicking here.
