Lifelong learning for adults is part of the core value of Central Lutheran Church.
Lifelong Faith Formation for Adults
The Creeds, the Church’s Faith Story, a five-week conversation
You are invited to join Pastor Peter for a study of the Creeds of the church, from the perspective of the faith story of the church. We will look at early biblical creeds, the development of the early church creeds and some of the interesting Creeds developed in different contexts. These conversations are to help us prepare for Lent as we explore affirmations of faith. In Lent, members of the congregation will share their faith stories as we continue to grow in faith together. This conversation will meet each Sunday in February and the first Sunday in March. You are invited to join all five or jump in when it works for you. The Sunday morning adult formation time is at 9:30 a.m. and meets in the lower narthex. Coffee, tea and cookies are served.
Winter Wednesday Evening Bible Study: The Gospel of Luke
Begins Wednesday, January 9, 6:00 p.m.
You are invited to join Pastor Peter for the winter Bible study that begins on Wednesday evening, January 9. The study is open to all, and no previous Bible study experience is needed. Pastor Peter provides materials for the entire study, so if you need to miss a session or two it is easy to keep up as you move through the book.
The study time concludes at 7:00 p.m. in time for choir members to get to choir by 7:15 p.m. The study is six weeks long, concluding on February 13.
The Gospel of Luke is the gospel that guides our worship life for this year. This study of Luke will be unique. It will look at the overview of the gospel at the first session, but the remaining five sessions will look at the unique features in Luke’s Gospel: the Christmas story and how that sets the stage, the parables of Jesus, Jesus as healer, Jesus’ call to justice and Luke’s emphasis on meals as a sign of God’s presence.
Plan to attend this winter study. The Bible study material can be downloaded here.
