October 14, 2018: You Are What You Eat
We will look at Martin Luther's surprising views on the Lord's Supper. You might be surprised at how conservative and radical he is at the same time!
This past summer, the high school youth of Bethel went to the National Youth Gathering in Houston, TX. The gathering is a week-‐long faith formation-‐focused conference attended by 30,000 Lutherans every three years. Our group will relate personal stories, impactful moments where they saw God working, and descriptions of some of the service work done while in Houston. You don’t want to miss hearing about what God has done with this group of youth!
