Reading is FUNdamental? Reading is FUNdamental.
Sometimes some of us enjoy reading a good book. As we celebrate God's blessing of the Lutheran Reformation 500 years ago, Pastor has set out his personal collection of Luther books as a special "Luther library." Feel free to borrow and enjoy books about Luther and books by Luther. All of the books are excellent in their own way; if you want a recommendation for a specific book from this special library, see Pastor.
Special Online Bible Study
Every Wednesday at 7 pm and 9 pm for the next month, there will be a special Bible study opportunity online at https://wels.net and hosted by Seminary Professor Joel Otto. Prof. Otto writes, “Luther’s Reformation led to profound developments that impacted the church and how people learn, confess, and live their faith. As Lutherans living in the 21st century, what Luther brought about is still part of who we are as Christians and as a church. This study will examine those developments that continue to have a lasting impact.” Join with fellow believers all over America and the world and be blessed by God's Word!
Thanks to all who prepared, participated, and shared in Christian fellowship at our chili cook-off yesterday!
