SUNDAYS

Sunday 10:15 am

Will the "Real" Jesus Please Stand Up? + Pastor Bloch + Fellowship Hall/Oak Room

Our culture is used to choices—and lots of them.  Our culture allows the sinful heart to go the way of idolatry.  Our culture also believes that truth varies from person to person.  All of this is what allows for such a great diversity of “false christs” in North America.  This class will explore twelve false christs that you may have bumped into from time to time.  We will explore who the real Jesus of Scripture is and then be able to contrast the real Jesus with all of the false christs.  Who Jesus has lasting ramifications in this life and the next! 

Lutheran Doctrine and Practice + Pastor Blomenberg + Fellowship Hall

Details make a difference when it comes to computer programs working properly and medical tests getting the correct results. Sometimes we don’t see the importance of details when it comes to what we believe and how we put this faith into practice. Since “doctrine” is simply another word for “teaching,” and Jesus said we are to "teach all things” He has commanded (Matthew 28), this class will look more deeply into what Scripture has to say about current issues where the details really matter. 

Broken: 7 Christian Rules that Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible + Vicar Tyler Werner + Fellowship Hall

There are only two kinds of spirituality in the world. One is false, and one is true. One is the manifestation of the old evil foe who has sent many false “spiritualities” out into the world, and the other is the holy spirituality found only in faith in the one true God. One is a lie, and one is real. But which is which? Come to class with Vicar Werner on Sunday mornings at 10:15 AM in the Fellowship Hall as we examine seven false “Christian” rules or teachings that every Christian ought to break as often as possible, because they are nothing more than the traditions of men. Jonathan Fisk’s book, Broken, will guide our discussion and study, and show us that, under the cross and in the pure Word of God, we will find the truth!

What Do Lutherans Believe, and Why? + Pastor Rodriguez + Room 202

Using a new, fresh study guide, this course will look at the essential teachings of the Bible about life, God, the world, and the future.  It provides the basic information needed for someone who is thinking about joining our church and can be a good review for members who have been here all their life.   We will look at the Bible's perspective on evil in a world God made good; how we can speak of God's creation in view of current scientific theory; and how Scriptures written long ago are reliable for us. We'll also address how we can  we be certain of salvation and how our beliefs are similar to and different from other Christians.  Using the Bible, a workbook, the Catechism, and discussion, we'll discover real answers for tough questions, including the ones you want to ask.  This class will prepare non-members to join the church, but there is no obligation to do so.

Men of Immanuel + Vicar Werner + Saturdays 8 am

Men of Immanuel: join Vicar Werner on Saturday mornings, 8 AM, at Larrison’s Diner in Seymour (200 South Chestnut Street). We will be working through the Lectionary, the Sunday readings.! Year C in the Lectionary focuses on Luke’s Gospel account. So, come and journey through the Lectionary, and especially the Gospel of Luke, as we follow Jesus’ journey from Bethlehem to Calvary. Come and be strengthened by the Word, encouraged and supported in fellowship with your fellow brothers, and fed and nourished with some great food! Check the church calendar for Summer dates and location. Occasionally we will meet for a potluck breakfast at Immanuel rather than at Larrison's.
