Join us to discuss Why We Do What We Do. With topics like the Jewish roots of Christian worship, Lutheran theology, the Bible in liturgy, and the Creeds; these drop-in classes aim to explore the reasons and history behind our worship. Everyone is welcome for one or many sessions. Also, if you feel you have some expertise to share, or want to do some deep-dive research on any of these or related topics, we would love to have some more facilitators for our class!
