Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings following the Lenten Midweek Vespers service at 7pm. You can reach the undercroft by going around to the back parking lot of the church and descending the staircase to the kitchen. Knock on the door if it is closed and some one will let you in. Our current study is Martin Luther’s Large Catechism. If you do not have a hard copy of the Book of Concord we are providing it for free, as well as copies of the Lutheran Service Book.
This week we will recite Psalm 33, read the First Article of the Apostle’s Creed from the Small Catechism, and sing verse 1 of “We All Believe in One True God” (LSB 954). We will then study the First Article of the Apostle’s Creed in the Large Catechism. We will talk about who the First Person of the Trinity is, God the Father. We will talk about how our earthly fathers are to emulate our Heavenly Father. We will also discuss the other major theme of creation, and discuss how God created all things. We will also discuss how to deal with the apparent conflicts between modern science and Scripture. We will close with singing the Navy Hymn “Eternal Father, Strong to Save” (LSB 717)
As always new people are always welcome to this study at any point during the class. Please talk to the Pastor, Elders or Paul Edmon if you have any questions.
