New Member Classes
If you're new to the Lutheran confession, transferring into the congregation, or simply curious about what we confess and believe, we invite you to attend our Catechumenate classes which typically meet each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., when the class is in session. If you would like more information on the class, please call the church office at 630 355-2198 or email Pastor Schumacher at email@example.com. Current members are also encouraged to attend this class for a refresher on the foundations of the faith.
