Bible Information Class / Bible 101

Another session beginning Sunday, September 18 from 9:30-10:30 am in room 301.

 

Are you new to Christianity?  Have you every wondered what the Bible really says?  Are you curious about what people from various Christian denominations believe?  Then this is the class for you.

Bible Information Class is a survey class that introduces participants to the Bible.  It introduces you to the true God. It reviews key events in history - creation, the promise of a Savior, Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost - and then ties it all together to explain what it all means.  You'll even learn about baptism and Holy Communion, and about the life God intends for you.

The Bible is our textbook.  You won't need any course materials - they'll all be provided.    Want to learn more?  Let us know!  We'll be happy to answer your questions, or register you for an upcoming session.  Click here to email us, or click here to enroll.


Bible 401 - The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel

Two main teachings of the Bible are Law and Gospel. Crucial to an understanding of your personal forgiveness, to understanding the Bible as a whole, to applying the Bible to daily life is an ability to divide Law and Gospel. Martin Luther once quipped, "Hence, whoever knows well this art of distinguishing between Law and Gospel, him place at the head and call him a doctor of Holy Scripture."

Redeemer will be offering a 401 level Bible study this fall that promises to be very rewarding.  Entitled, "The Proper Distinction between Law and Gospel," participants first of all will be equipped in Bible teachings. A special emphasis will be given to practical application.

Beginning September 8, this study will run on Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. up to Thanksgiving. This will be the first of four semesters of study on the topic. A second semester is planned in spring of 2017.

Participants will need an advance copy of a $25 textbook that is required for the course. There will be reading and study questions to prepare in advance of each class. Preparation time varies from person to person, but will probably take about an hour or two a week. Advance preparation is strongly encouraged to facilitate meaningful discussion during the Thursday class.

If you would like to enroll in the class, please contact Pastor Mueller or the church office before September 1.
