ADULT INFORMATION CLASS

Join us for adult information classes that provide an overview of our church’s beliefs, with a focus on showing where these teachings are found in the Bible. It also gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about what we believe and why.

These sessions serve as preparation for becoming a confirmed member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church — but everyone is welcome to attend the class, without any obligation to join. The class can also serve as a refresher for those who are already members.

The class meets at the church on Saturdays at 1:00 PM.
