We preach Christ crucified.” (1 Corinthians 1:23).
“Far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world,” wrote St. Paul in Galatians 6:14. Martin Luther once said, “The cross alone is our theology!” To the cross, to the cross, to the cross we go as we continue our Lenten journey with our “Lamb of God ... Who on the cross didst suffer” (LSB 434). And according to 1 Corinthians 1:21–25, we find eternal wisdom in the foolishness of God.
Join with Pastor on Sunday mornings at 8:55 am in the church office to strengthen your faith in this special Bible study that leads us through Lent toward Christ’s glorious Easter Resurrection.

Update on Kurt Piepenbrink’s class: The prime intent of the Book of Acts is religious. It portrays the impact of the risen and exalted Christ upon the wide world. The Christ confronts men in the inspired word of the messengers whom He Himself has chosen.
Join us in the study of the Acts of the Apostles and delight in how the Word of the Lord grows in your heart.

Scripture records Jesus’ deeds and is the witness of His power. These things are written that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, Son of God (John 20:20-21).
There is no other way to know and experience the love of Jesus than through His Word. Adult Bible class helps us to draw near Jesus.
