New Member Series – Fall 2019
Wednesdays 6:00-7:30 p.m. August 21-September 25, 2019.
Holy Cross offers a Bible study series for new members entitled “The Basics of the Christian Faith: Christianity 101″ (or Christianity 101 for short). It’s both an introduction to Christianity for new believers, as well as a great review of Lutheran Christian doctrine for all believers.

Following the series, those who are new to the Lutheran faith are invited to join the church through the Rite of Confirmation. Those who have never been baptized in a Christian church will be invited for baptism. There is no obligation, however, to join the Church. The series is intended to be an introduction to what is basic to Christian faith in general, and to Lutherans in particular.  Topics include:

  • What’s the problem?
  • How can I be saved?
  • What is heaven?
  • Why is there evil in the world?
  • What’s the difference between religions?
  • What about angels?
  • What’s the deal with the 10 Commandments?
  • Who was Jesus and why was He here?
You can get more information by e-mail.

The only things you need to bring are a pencil and a personal study Bible (and we’ll give you one for free if you don’t have one). All other materials are provided. There is no cost.

It’s not like “school”: it’s a Bible study. There are no exams and no memory work. We want you to know the basics of the Christian faith whether you join Holy Cross or not. Let’s discover together what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ!
