Didache* is a thirteen-session study of the Christian Faith as confessed and practiced among Evangelical Lutherans. We will work through the Small Catechism, study the Scriptures, discuss the meaning of the Divine Service, and explore how we serve God in our daily lives (vocation).
Intended for those interested in membership at Immanuel, Didache is open to anyone wanting a review of Lutheran doctrine, liturgy, prayer, and ethics. Immanuel will provide a copy of the book Didache as well as a Small Catechism.
The Fall 2016 session of Didache began October 16, 2016 and concluded April 9, 2017 (Palm Sunday). We will meet most Sundays at 8:45 a.m.. We will break for the Christmas/Epiphany holiday and certain Sundays when only one pastor is at Immanuel. Baptisms or Confirmations will be held on April 15, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. (Vigil of Easter). The class is led by Pastor Esget and Pastor Eckardt.
We will meet in the Fellowship Hall (Undercroft) for a common opening with the Adult Scripture Study class and will then move to the third grade classroom on the same level (marked "Mrs. Krumwiede").
Please contact Pastor Esget (firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-549-0155) to register or for more information.
You are encouraged to bring your own Bible. At Immanuel we use both the New King James Version (NKJ) and the English Standard Version (ESV). In class, we will use chielfy the ESV.
