These epistles are moving, loving, pastoral responses meant to rally the faithful in the churches of Asia Minor who were facing many threats to their existence. These were churches John had tended and encouraged for many years. Now, knowing his own life is fading, he urges his “children” to continue to confess Christ as the Son of God and hold fast to the hope and promise for this life and the life to come that they have been given through Christ’s death and resurrection. Join the Mount Olivet Pastors for this inspiring study.  REGISTER NOW


Tuesdays, 7-8:30pm |  APRIL 7-MAY 5 | Minneapolis Campus
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!  Presentation 7-8:15pm, optional small group discussion 8:15-8:45pm. Cost: Donation. REGISTER NOW

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The Life and Witness of a Modern Martyr Thursdays, April 16 - May 7, 7-8:30pm, Room 482-86, Mpls Campus. Seventy years after his death, Bonhoeffer continues to command our attention. In this course with Dr. Mark Tranvik, Augsburg College, we first will review the context of Bonhoeffer's life, paying special attention to the factors that led to the triumph of Nazism in Germany and what this meant for the Christian church. Through film and some of his writings, we then will explore Bonhoeffer’s early life and protest, the war years, his martyrdom and fame, and why and how his writings continue to speak to Christians today. Please join us for this timely and fascinating study of one of Christianity's most influential martyrs and theologians. REGISTER NOW
