Adult Bible Class: Sunday morning Adult Bible Study will resume on September 10 at 9:15am in the gym.  In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation we will explore “A Man Named Martin”.  Nearly 500 years ago, an unknown monk from a backwater town in Germany, set in motion a movement that would literally transform Western civilization.  The impact Martin Luther had on the growth and development of Christianity is enormous.  But how did this unknown miner’s son change the world?  In this Lutheran Hour Ministries’ Bible Study, we will examine the life and times of this religious reformer.  From his humble beginnings in Germany to his tireless work to understand Scripture and share the truths of the Bible, Martin Luther inspired a Reformation that reverberates throughout Christendom to this day.

Adult Membership Classes: For those who would like to become a member of the church please contact Pastor Keith at 716-693-3715 or keithaknupp@gmail.com
