Sunday Morning Bible Classes
What is E4?
E4 expresses the purpose of adult education at Redeemer Lutheran Church. Our purpose is to Equip the Saints – to provide our members with a thorough education in the Bible, its teachings, and how it applies to our lives today.
But our purpose is not just to equip the saints with a lot of knowledge. Our purpose is to change people’s lives. And that only happens when the people of God start living out what they believe. Our purpose is to Equip the Saints FOR. That’s where we get the E4 – Equip FOR.
We want to Equip the Saints
- FOR the work of ministry,
- FOR the building up of the Body of Christ,
- FOR greater unity of faith and knowledge, and
- FOR maturity in Christ (from Eph. 4:11-13).
THAT is how we will start making a difference in our families, our community and our world.
As part of our commitment to provide all members with a well-rounded understanding of God’s Word, we will annually provide at least one class in each of the following:
- NT Studies: A synoptic Gospel1, Acts or a Pauline epistle2, John or a general epistle3
- OT Studies: History4, wisdom & poetry5, prophecy6
- Theological Foundations: Doctrine overview, the confessions, a Lutheran teaching
- Life Application: Witnessing, personal devotional life, coping skills
- Theological Topics: History, current issues, other religions
- Relationship Application: Parenting, marriage, living single
Every three years: Genesis or Exodus, John, Romans or Galatians, NT Overview, OT Overview, Hermeneutics, Reformation History
- Synoptic Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke
- Pauline Epistles: Romans – Philemon
- General Epistles: Hebrews – Revelation
- History: Genesis – Esther
- Wisdom: Job - Song of Solomon
- 6Prophets: Isaiah – Malachi
