Wednesdays in Lent - Study of Luther's Small Catechism

Ever wonder what those crazy Lutherans believe?
Martin Luther, 1483-1546

     During Lent this year, we will be doing a prayerful study of Martin Luther's Small Catechism.  Luther wrote the Small Catechism to be used in churches and in households - for parents and children to learn from each other.  This Lent, we'll be learning the Catechism from each other and praying together as a church community. 
     The Catechism is Luther's teachings on the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion).  There will be studies for both kids and adults, with a special emphasis on Bible passages and memorization through song for the kids and an emphasis on prayer for adults.  In fact, we will learn how to pray through the Catechism.

So, bring the whole family and come on out for our 5-week study on Wednesdays during Lent, beginning February 29 and ending March 28.  The meal starts at 6pm and study for children and adults begins at 7pm.
