  • Meandering through Advent:  Luther's Teachings on the Last Times and Christmas
    Tuesday   7:00 pm   Tempe Sanctuary
    November 28, December 5 & 12

    Pastor Steve Holm will lead us in this study of Luther and Advent.
    Because Luther believed he was living in the Last Times, he had a deep love of Christmas, themes which on the surface may seem antithetical.
    During these sessions, we'll look at what Luther taught and reflect a bit about the place of preparation as we look to the future.
