Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield will begin a new Summer 2013 Bible study series this week.
June 4 marks the beginning of a 6-8 week special study on the book of Roman’s, using material from Augsburg Fortress’ “Book of Faith” series.
The primary lens through which Lutherans read scripture is that of Law and Gospel. But what is the law? God’s law is everything that God asks of us. However, because we acknowledge that we cannot do all God asks, we must look to God for grace and mercy, for love and all forgiveness. The gospel is everything that God does for us.
It doesn’t matter if you are a biblical scholar or have never study the bible, whether you bring your own bible or use one on the many we have on the shelf; whether you can be there every week or a few weeks, all are welcome. The group meets in the church parlor Tuesday night’s from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
