Things Have Changed! 

I’ll bet a lot of things have changed for you since you were 14.  We’ve all grown a lot since then, and we look at things and think about things a little bit differently.  Do you think the same way about money today as you did when you were 14?  Or about marriage? Or sex?  Or work?  A lot has changed since then!

And yet, for many of us, 14 was the last time we studied the main teachings of the Bible.  A lot’s changed since then.  Maybe you have never had any formal Bible instruction. Maybe you’ve gone through some tough times, or maybe you’ve suffered a hurt.  Maybe you’ve even been driven to question some of those most basic things you were taught at 14.


Come to ask your questions, and come to go through it all again! Periodically we conduct a fifteen-week class called: Basic Bible Christianity


Basic Bible Christianity is a review of the basic teachings of God’s Word, which we Lutherans believe. Maybe it’ll look different this time around. Or maybe you’ll look at it differently.


Classes: Classes start Tuesday, Sept. 18th. Every Tuesday @ 6:30 pm. Each lesson lasts about one and one half hours.  Classes are held in the Fellowship Hall.

Content: With each class we cover a basic theme.  Each theme will help us answer questions such as: “Who is God?”  “What is faith?”  “Where does faith come from?”  “Who is Jesus?” “What is baptism?”  Through the use of various passages from the Bible we will learn God’s answers to these questions.

Is there homework? Yes. The homework that is offered is designed for your personal benefit.  You are also encouraged to review each lesson on your own and bring any additional questions you might have to the next class.
What do I bring?  Bring your Bible. Bring a pencil.  Bring your questions.  Bring a friend!  Workbooks will be provided.


Registration would be greatly appreciated. Registering before the class helps to assure that we have enough materials on hand.  You can register by using the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the hallway of the church.  Or you can call the church office and speak with Pastor Winkel (231) 777-3011.
