Galatians: The Freedom of a Christian
How to Get it, and How to Lose it
Luther Seal
Sundays starting, Sept. 7 through Oct. 19 
Similar sessions will take place at 9:30 and 11 a.m. in the Friendship Room
Sessions will also be available on our YouTube channel.  
Next to the column Study Topic is the accompanying PowerPoints for each Lesson.
This study, led by Dr. Chris Croghan, director of the Luther House of Study, will teach Luther’s amazing insights into this powerful letter. In this short book of the Bible, St. Paul fiercely defends and proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ. You will be exposed to the core of Lutheran theology, learn to rightly distinguish God’s word, and hear once again the freeing, life giving promises of God. These classes will be a great complement to the preaching on Galatians in worship.
A study guide is available for download here.
