These classes will mirror the Sunday School classes in order to gain awareness of what our young people are learning and to be a help for them when they have questions. Beginning with the story of Joseph in October, we will gather in the Augsburg Room between Sunday services and repeat the class the following Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.. Thursday’s lunchtime Bible study will continue examining the Augsburg Confession through the end of October, starting at 12:15 p.m. Bring your lunch and your appetite for lively discussion!
