Join us throughout the month of October for our sermon series, The Reformation. On October 31, 1517, 500 years ago, Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the church doors at Wittenberg Castle Church that started the Protestant Reformation. During the series, we will be observing key elements and themes that shaped the Reformation including Luther's points of contention. We will also identify what it means to be a Protestant today. Join us for a thoughtful and insightful journey into our church's history and tradition.
