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.

Summer Classes 2017

(Note: there will be no Sunday classes on July 30, which is a special Anniversary Sunday.)

SUNDAY CLASSES

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 BOOK OF PSALMS
June 11—August 27 (no class July 30)
Instructor: Rev. Gene Brunow
Location:
Brandt Hall
The Psalms are called “the prayer book of the Bible.” Martin Luther loved the psalms and used them as his daily prayers. They are part of our worship services. Psalms are suitable for every occasion in life; they express a vast array of emotions—joy, triumph, loneliness, fear, despair, anger. Some can seem harsh as well confusing. In this class we will study the various kinds of psalms and, as we apply them to our lives, discover that they are not confusing at all.

Special Presentation - MISSION: PUERTO RICO
July 2
Presenter: Rev. Matthew Ruesch
Location: Ebenezer Hall, Lower Level
Pastor Ruesch will talk about his work as pastor to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Maya-güez, Puerto Rico, where he shares Word and Sacrament with his congregation and directs evan-gelism and mercy efforts in the community.
