The series presents the articles of faith, Apostles Creed, Ten Commandments, Lord’s Prayer, Baptism and Communion in discussion.  We invite you to join us either in person or on zoom and participate—since this is a discussion series, there won’t be much of a discussion if you don’t add your voice.

This Sunday, April 3: This week we will continue with the Lenten review of Luther’s Small Catechism with his study of Baptism.
