Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (Gathering) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.

THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE CROSS is a well-written introduction to understand what Lutherans believe in with a focus toward spirituality. This bible study will help you to understand the theology of the cross, the hidden nature of God, and Luther’s idea of vocation.

CHRISTIANITY — THE FIRST THREE CENTURIES “How could a tiny, tortured faith become the most successful phenomenon in all of history? During its first three hundred years from Christ to Constantine, the Christian church had to wage a two-front campaign against external persecution and internal heresy until if finally conquered the Roman Empire–and the future.” Dr. Paul Maier begins the 8-part DVD series with a look at the sources of information utilized, Jesus of Nazareth, apostles, emperors, persecutions, early church leaders, martyrs, and the eventual triumph of Christianity. This class meets in the Fellowship Hall East and is led by Don Wischmeyer.
