The Creeds – What We Say and Why Every Sunday we say a creed--either the Nicene, Apostles', or sometimes even the Athanasian. What are we saying in each of these creeds? Why recite them every week (or even twice a day, as Luther suggested)? While Lutherans most often recite the Apostle's Creed, we also hold dear the Nicene Creed—a "fighting" creed meant to oppose false teachings, bad preaching, and attacks on the Gospel. Over our first three sessions, Dr. Stephen Paulson, Luther Seminary, will share the thrilling history of the Nicene Creed, its deeper meanings, and why it remains so important. He will then spend a session each on the Apostles’ and Athanasian Creeds. As you come to understand them all better, you will find yourself saying them more boldly! Tuesdays, April 7—May 5, Room 482-86, Mpls Campus. Presentation 7-8:15pm, optional small group discussion 8:15-8:45pm. Cost: Donation.

Welcome!

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.   And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9 (NIV)

 At Mount Olivet, adult learning opportunities are all about life-long faith exploration and growth.  We want to help you draw nearer to God by discovering new insights from the Bible and exploring relevant religious topics.  We are here to help you transfer that learning into action with spiritual practices that deepen your relationship with God and invite God's peace into your daily life.  When we learn more about our faith and apply it to our lives, we are on the way to Believing more deeply in Jesus Christ, Belonging more purposefully to the community of Christ, and Becoming more intentionally like Christ.

Whether you attend a series of classes at one of our campuses, join a small study group that meets away from church, or explore our online resources, we pray that you will discover questions, Scripture, and insights that allow the Holy Spirit to deepen your faith and your growth as a Christian.

 

Beginning in April
