Winter 2017 Interactive Faith announced

The next Interactive Faith online Bible study will begin Wed., Feb. 1. The sessions will be offered live twice every Wednesday in February at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. (central).

The study will be led by Rev. Randy Hunter from St. Andrew, Middleton, Wis. Hunter, who has spent several years touring the country leading marriage enrichment workshops for WELS members, will be discussing “Mysterious Marriage,” a study on building a Christian marriage.

“This study is for couples who want to build their marriage on the gospel of Jesus. Marriage isn’t a sacrament like Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, but it is a profoundly holy thing. The gospel of Jesus helps us understand and practice marriage. Marriage helps us understand and appreciate the gospel,” says Hunter. “Marriage matters. It matters to our nation, to our communities, our children, our churches, and our Lord. Your marriage is part of your testimony about God’s promises to us.”

Many congregations gather as a group for the study; other WELS members connect as small groups 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. To join the study, visit wels.net/interactivefaith.
