Bible Study

Wednesday mornings     10AM-12 noon


(led by Nadine Anderson, Synod Parish Deacon)


The book of Acts is written by the author of Luke’s Gospel. It shows what the church was like in its infancy. When we read about the miracles, traditions, customs and leadership, we can see early church leaders grappling with conflict, persecution and issues facing the people. We can observe the conversion of Paul and see how Jesus was reaching people, even years after his resurrection. Most important, we can read a history of early Christians trying to figure out faith in a dangerous world.

March 5, 12, 19, 26  Meet in Grace Chapel  Led by Pastor Wally Meyer

 

Ever since the early years of the Reformation, Lutherans have been called “The Singing Church.”

 

Music in worship, both vocal and instrumental, began long before the time of Martin Luther, stretching back into the Old Testament and to the synagogue where the early disciples worshiped.

 

This class will examine and sing music from the Old and New Testament, Luther’s own compositions, J.S. Bach, and others in more recent times who have inspired our worship and led our praise.

 

Join Pastor Meyer in Grace Chapel on Sunday mornings in March.
