Wednesday Word: The Book of James

                    MPLS: Wed April 4 - May 2, 9:30-10:45am, Rm 207

So we can plan appropriately, please register! Come enjoy hearing from a different Mount Olivet Pastor each week as together they lead us into the book of James, which encourages us as Christians to “be doers of the word, and not merely hearers” (1:22). Feeling James put too much emphasis on “good works,” Martin Luther once called James a “book of straw,” but later came to appreciate it. Come and learn more—and bring friends. All are welcome!

Tuesday PM Bible Study: Coping, Bible Study

                    MPLS: Tues April 10 - May 1, 7-8:30pm, Rm 207

The Bible's "Wisdom Literature" (Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon) is in many ways simply a collection of biblical ways to cope with the vicissitudes of life. Discover how each one might be of help in our own pressurized society as Dr. Mark Throntveit, Luther Seminary, with his wealth of knowledge and signature wit leads us in what is sure to be a lively and valuable closer look at these rich biblical treasures.

What's Sp Special About "Lutheran" Anyway?

                    WEST: Tues April 10 - May 1, 7-8:30pm, Fellowship Hall

Didn’t grow up Lutheran? Been a very l-o-n-g time since Confirmation? Or, simply wondering what’s unique about being Lutheran, anyway? If any of these apply, this 4-week look at “Lutheran basics” with Senior Pastor David Lose is for you! You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of what makes Lutheranism unique and a greater appreciation for how Lutherans understand God’s love for and relationship with us. If you have copies of the Small Catechism and/or Dr. Lose’s book Making Sense of Martin Luther, please bring them. If not, copies will be available for your use. Note: A similar class will be repeated at the Minneapolis Campus at a later date.
