I have decided to change the current adult education theme. The Truth Project was designed to be a 90-minute format for anyone to fully benefit. Feedback I have received acknowledges the need for more discussion which cannot be done in a beneficial manner given our 60-minute Wednesday night and Sunday morning schedule.
In place of The Truth Project, we will be showing the Visual Bible: The Gospel of John Wednesdays at 5:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall and Sundays at 10:45 AM in the chapel. We will show about 30 minutes of the DVD and then have 15-20 minutes for discussion.
Here is a brief description: The Visual Bible: The Gospel of John, vividly comes to life in a faithful and powerful dramatization of the Biblical text. The Gospel of John meticulously re-recreates the era of Jesus during a tumultuous period that changed the course of history. Starring Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus, and narrated by Christopher Plummer, and with a cast of over 2500, The Gospel of John has been adapted for the screen, word for word, based on the American Bible Society's Good News Bible, by Emmy-nominated John Goldsmith and is directed by acclaimed British director, Philip Saville.
We hope to see you there!

We, the congregation of First Lutheran Church, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament, calling people to new life and discipleship. We grow in faith, hope and love as a community of believers through worship, prayer and study. We serve people in need by sharing God's love in our community and throughout the world.
We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
