Bible Studies at St. Paul's
Tuesday morning at Twin Rivers senior campus, at 8:30 a.m. there is an opportunity to explore the Bible. The current study and discussion is upon the book of Galatians with special emphasis on the Christian and Mosaic Law.
You will note that we will provide two opportunities to study confessions of the church - Wednesday evening with the Augsburg Confession and Sunday morning with the Formula of Concord. This upcoming October 31st is the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Lutheran Church with the posting of the Ninety-five Theses. Hopefully everyione who wishes will be able to attend one of those opportunites and those who wish to have a better understanding of both can attend both.
Pastor Don Hochmuth will lead a study in the Augsburg Confession, written in 1530. The Augsburg Confession (AC) was the major statement of faith and Biblical teaching presented by the leaders of what would be called the Lutheran church. The emperor had called for a meeting of Lutheran leaders and Roman Catholic leaders. Pastor Hochmuth has a great deal of knowledge about the Reformation and enjoys discussing the AC. Pastor Hochumuth will begin this study, Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. on September 13th.
Sunday Morning at 8:00 a.m.
The early Bible Study will begin Sunday, September 10th and will focus upon the purpose and major truths of the Minor prophets in the Old Testament. There are two things about this study that are great to explore. First we will reflect upon the promises of the Savior when they occur in the minor prophets. Second we will compare the spiritual life of the people in the Old Testament with our own age. We have similar spiritual struggles as they.
Sunday Morning at 10:30 a.m.
Also beginning Sunday, September 10th will be a study of the Formula of Concord.
of 1580. While the Augsburg Confession might be called the "birth confession" of the Lutheran church, the Formula of Concord (FC) is the confession of "continuing life" of the Lutheran church.
