Confessions Reading Plans

The Brothers of John the Steadfast encourage the creation of reading groups at churches across the country. We also have an online reading group for those who either don’t yet have a local group, or who want to read online.

There is a reading plan at the start of the the Concordia edition; many local reading groups start at the beginning, starting with the creeds and continuing on.

The online group can be found at; we have just started at the appropriate location. You are welcome to join in at any time, just write questions or comments as comments on the weekly articles. Note that this group has died out due to lack of people doing the reading and commenting on it. If you want us to restart this group, we would be happy to do so.

In the meantime, if you don’t have a group by you, you can use the Daily Readings from the Book of Concord, or you can join the online group at the Wittenberg Trail.

If you have a reading plan that has worked for your group, please comment here telling us about it.


Confessions Reading Plans — 2 Comments

  1. I am planning a confessional study group with my end game the planting of a new LCMS congregation in Eastern Pennsylvania. The venue for the confessional study group would be the Lutheran Community Home in Telford PA. The Community Home is a pan-Lutheran organization that includes LCMS residents, so there should be no objection to a study group using the chapel or meeting rooms on the site. I am seeking lesson plans and advice on the best approach to leading the group. There is a paperback edition of the Book of Concord or are hand out lessons a better way to lead a discussion? I had over a one year period studied the Book of Concord and I frequently return to the Book. I am eager for your prayers and godly counsel on how best to proceed. In my area of PA we urgently need more Confessional Lutheran local Churches; this is ELCA country of the old Pennsylvania Ministerium. The harvest is great but the labourers are few.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Your partner in the Gospel,

    Robert Placer
