Learn about The Reformation
May 1, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Learn about The Reformation: It’s historic and personal Importance!
Next year marks the 500th anniversary of The Reformation. (“Reformation” has to do with reforming, or correcting, the Catholic Church of Luther’s time.)
The Reformation is very important to modern Christians. Since many in our congregation are recent immigrants to the USA, or recent converts to Christianity, we decided to start our celebration early!!! Church members will have an “extra” year to practice what they learn! And that is a GOOD THING!
Our study of the reformation begins at the Sunday service on May 1 (9:30 AM). This will include the first of several short Temple Talks about The Reformation that Martin Luther was instrumental in starting. These Temple Talks are dramatic readings, featuring a visit by Father Martin Luther, who will tell us about what happened during The Reformation, what it meant in creating many new churches such as the Lutheran Church of the Cross, and what Father Luther’s discoveries mean toChristians (after The Reformation)as regards their personal salvation.
We owe a lot to Martin Luther! These talks will help us understand just how important he was, and how important his Reform message is to each of us today!
The series on The Reformation will be continued in the following Sundays (May 15, May 22 ), It will end on May 29 with a dinner, followed by a full-length movie on The Reformation.Both Free!
