The theme for January’s meeting will be “Christian Faith and Christian Freedom.” All women of the Atonement community are warmly invited to attend.
Beat the winter doldrums and join us for Bible, Baked Goods and Beverage at 9 a.m., January 21st in the Atonement Coffee Shop. In honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, we will begin a four-part Bible study Galatians: Christian Faith and Christian Freedom.
The study was written by Kit Kleinhans, a professor at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. “Biblical scholars describe Paul’s letter to the Galatians as the Magna Carta of Christian freedom,” Kleinhans writes. “Martin Luther called it ‘my Katie von Bora.’ Like his marriage to Katie, Luther’s relationship with Galatians was a rich and lasting one.
Over a period of 20 years, Luther published six commentaries on the epistle. Luther’s reformation was centered in the doctrine of justification by grace through faith for Christ’s sake, which he saw as the heart of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Christians in Galatia. It is also the heart of Paul’s and Luther’s message for us today.” All women are welcome. Those needing a ride to church should call the church office at (315) 492-9065 by 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning (1/21/17). We are located at 116 W. Glen Ave. 13205.
