    Grace Bible Study Days

    August 15, 16 & 17

    Grace Bible Study Days are back again this August! In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation of the church, the three Grace pastors are offering insight and discussion into three of Martin Luther's chief essays:

    The Bondage of the Will - How much "free wil" do you have?

    The Babylonian Captivity of the Church - 7 sacraments or 2, and does it really matter?

    Secular Authority: To What Extent It Should Be Obeyed - Church & State - conflict or cooperation?

    Each study is available every night. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a light meal, with the studies beginning at 7 p.m. Childcare for ages 3 and under will be available, while Bible stories and craft projects for ages 4 and older will be provided.
