Exploring Faith Through the Small Catechism – Saturday, January 18–Worship:8:30; Class 9-10:30

New to faith? Curious about about baptism? Never went through confirmation?

Just want to know more about what it means to be Lutheran and a disciple of Christ?

Lay School is offering an opportunity for those who are interested to take a deep dive into the Small Catechism the By Heart curriculum. This study will engage students in an exploration of the commandments, the creeds, the Lord’s Prayer, the sacraments, and life together as members of the body of Christ. No Prior Knowledge Required! This study is for anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith in a supportive, positive environment that encourages questions. Although it is helpful to bring a Bible to the study, we will have some on hand. Materials for the study are being provided by the synod, and there is no cost to you! The study will meet once a month when lay school meets: February 15, March 21, April 18 & May 9. If interested or you want to learn more, please call Pastor Jen Hoffman @ 715.581.7378 or email her at pasterjenhoffman@sslcwausau.com
