New Sunday Morning Bible Class

Begins Sunday, January 6 - What does it mean to read the Bible as a Lutheran?  Does it mean that we will interpret Scripture through the lens of Lutheran teaching?  We have a better answer than that.  As we study 2 Peter, we will see how following Luther is nothing less than basing every teaching upon the clear Word of God.  This study will give us ample opportunity to appreciate our Lutheran heritage as we hear what God says through Peter and say, “Amen.  This is what I believe, and this is what we teach.” This class will be taught by Pastor Eric Schroeder.
