But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed.”
St. Matthew 8:8
Jesus Came for Gentiles, Too
Adult Bible Class meets at 9am in the Parish Center. This week the class studied Hebrews 10.1-18. Next week we move to Hebrews 10.19-25; “The Open Way.” “Brothers” in Christ are encouraged by Hebrews to make good use of what Christ has accomplished – to come near to God in the Divine Service with a true heart, holding fast the confession of hope, and provoking each other to love and good works.
Sunday Afternoon Theology on the Lutheran Confessions continues after Divine Service. Class meets for one hour, and you’re invited to bring a lunch. This class is for anyone desiring a deeper look at our Lutheran Confessions and liturgy, and for anyone who may be interested in joining our congregation as a communicant member.
Tuesday Night Theology begins this Tuesday, January 29 at 7pm. Our society has blurred the definitions of man and woman far from God’s intention. As Christians living in an increasingly hostile world, it is important that we know how to give a faithful answer to those who may ask us to confess (1 Peter 3.15-16). Come and join us as we learn from God’s Word who God has made us to be as men and women in Christ. Sign up by the Parish Office or speak to Vicar Cornwell.
