Interactive Faith online Bible study
Wednesdays, 6 or 8 p.m. CST
September 21-October 26, 2016
The next six-week Interactive Faith online Bible study will begin Wed., Sept. 21, 2016. Rev. John Braun, Northwestern Publishing House, will lead the study twice each Wednesday at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. (central) through Oct. 26.
Theme: “What does this mean? The continuing importance of Luther’s Small Catechism”
What is this study about?
We will study the importance of Luther’s Small Catechism for our own society and culture. We will review the six chief parts. What does it mean for Christian morality in today’s world without moral standards? What does it mean for Christian beliefs in a world where you can believe anything? What does it mean for Christian devotion and our personal relationship with God? What does it mean for our church life as Lutherans when the church appears to be more social than spiritual? The class will start with a little history of the Catechism and its importance in the Reformation and conclude with a discussion of what the future may hold for us and the next generation.

What is an Interactive online Bible Study?
Thousands of WELS members have participated in the Interactive Faith Bible studies, which are held twice a year and led by a WELS pastor or professor. The studies are streamed live online twice each week. Many congregations gather as a group for the study; other WELS members connect as couples or individuals. The studies are designed to have 10 to 15 minutes of lecture by the instructor, followed by 5 to 10 minutes for congregations to discuss a question or two or do further study. Participants can interact with the instructor via a chat box on the live stream.
