Think Lutheran

For those new and those ready to renew their faith.

A course on Lutheranism for adults.

Many of our members come from different church backgrounds and may not be familiar with some of the Lutheranism basics. And that’s okay. This course is designed to be a fun way for adults to learn and engage with our Lutheran heritage.

This course will hit five core topics of the Lutheran denomination (history, the Creed, 10 Commandments, Lord’s Prayer, and the Sacraments) in 3 to 4 weeks sessions that will help us to “Think Lutheran.” If you end up going through all five classes, we will have a fun (and funny) patch for your grand achievement.

An online portion is also in the works, to make the course more available to members who have other obligations on Wednesday nights, like Choir rehearsal.

If you have any questions, contact Pastor Laura Henrik, pastor for discipleship, at laura@stjohns-salisbury.org.
