Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings 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. We are studying the The Smalcald Articles in the Book of Concord. If you do not have a copy of the Book of Concord we are providing them for free.
The Psalm for this week is Psalm 30. The Small Catechism lesson is the Second Commandment.
This well we will read Part III Article I: Sin. We will talk about Original Sin and how death comes from sin. We will also talk about actual sins, and how sin utterly corrupts humanity such that we are dead spiritually. We will close this article with the singing of “All Mankind Fell in Adam’s Fall” (LSB 562).
We will then read Part III Article II: The Law. We will talk about what God’s Law is and its primary functions as curb, mirror, and guide. Our closing hymn will be “These are the Holy Ten Commands” (LSB 581)
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.
