2017-2018 Adult Christian Education, Discipleship and Small Groups!
 

REFORMATION QUESTIONS, REFORMATION ANSWERS What do you know about the Reformation?  Did you know this year is the 500th anniversary of this church-changing event?  How many theses did Luther post (or not post) on the door of the castle church at Wittenberg, Germany?  These, and many other questions about the Reformation, will be answered in a four class session for adults on Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. in October leading up to Reformation Sunday on October 29.  The basis of our study will be a book called:  Reformation Questions, Reformation Answers, 95 Key Events, People, & Issues by Donald K. McKim.  Sign up, purchase your book, read the first 30 pages, and come to class on Oct 8, 15, 22, and 29.  If you have further questions, please contact Betsy Baer, bbaer1216@aol.com, or Pastor Jon, jgnelson1985@gmail.com.

Equipping the Saints is a discipleship program offered to gain tools and develop skills to better serve our community as leaders.



NEXT Equipping the Saints: The Theology in Our Songs Have you ever been singing along to a song on the radio and suddenly realized what you were singing? Sometimes we love songs because of their tunes and don't pay attention to their lyrics. This also happens with our worship songs. What are we saying we believe when we sing certain songs? Join us Thursday, Oct. 5 at for dinner at 6:30 and 7 pm for a discussion on the theology in our worship songs. Contact Discipleship Elder, Steve Debus, with any questions (steve.debus89@gmail.com).
