Reformation 500th Anniversary

On Sunday October 29th, we mark our official celebration of the beginning of the Lutheran Reformation when Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany.   1517 was just the beginning of the decades of the Lutheran Reformation.

There were other reformations as well:  the Calvinist reformation, the radical reformation, and the Counter-Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church.   There would be other splinters later – Arminians and Wesleyans, and other radical protestant groups.   But we celebrate the conservative Lutheran Reformation which sought only to reform what needed to be reformed in accordance with Holy Scripture.

Join us Sunday, October 29th at 9:00 AM for Divine Service

If you like, many will be wearing red to celebrate the occasion.  Red is the liturgical color for Reformation Day.    You are encouraged to take out your copy of Luther’s Small Catechism and review the treasures restored to the church there in summary form.
