RECONNECT: BACK TO THE BASICS

40 Days of Inspiration Reconnect Study Guide
In the church’s history, a focus on the basic teachings of Christianity was a common practice in Lent’s lifecycle. In the confessions of Lutheran Christians is a document that teaches those essential elements. It is called Luther’s Small Catechism, and contained within is an explanation of the Ten Commandments, Apostles’ Creed, Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Confession, Vocation, and Lord’s Supper. This devotional will provide a summary, discussion questions, and practical application of each section.
 
Please join us this Lenten season as we take a more in depth look at some of the basic building blocks of our faith, devotionals will be posted every Wednesday from February 17th (Ash Wednesday) – March 24th, and on Maundy Thursday.
 
You can also Print or save a copy or pick up one at either Campus.
