NEW FALL CLASSES BEGIN SEPTEMBER 11.
Here are important courses you can attend on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. Choose two or three. Join your friends and make new friends as you grow in faith and understanding.
Lutheran Christianity: What We Believe
11 Sessions: September 11-November 27 (no class October 30)
Instructors: Rev. Thomas A. Eggold, Mrs. Lana Hille, Rev. Daniel Sheafer
Location: Brandt Hall
For all new members and members who would like a refresher, this course examines what Lutherans believe, why we believe it, and why it’s important. There will be chances to ask questions about God and faith and religion. Lutheran Christianity is a path to church membership, but the class in no way obligates students to join Emmanuel.
We are blessed by the Lord to welcome Daniel Sheafer to Emmanuel.
Please pray for Daniel as he prepares to serve as Emmanuel’s Associate Pastor.
Daniel Sheafer will be ordained into the Office of the Holy Ministry on Sunday, July 17, 2016. In this special service, Dan will also be installed as the Associate Pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church. The ordination/installation will be held on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Kramer Chapel. The service will begin at 3:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
