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.
Wednesday evenings 7PM-8:30PM
(Led by Pastor John Hillmer)
Introduction to Islam Harold Vogelaar, Visiting Professor of World Religion at Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago, IL, and other top scholars of the Islamic faith share basic beliefs, and practices of Islam, and the historic and current relationship between Christians and Muslims. Come and have a look into the origins and complicated diversities of the world's second largest religion.

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.
