The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation is upon us! October 31st, 1517 Martin Luther hung his 95 thesis or complaints regarding the Catholic Church at the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, Germany. With the newly invented printing press, his message was shared throughout Europe quickly. so did the Bible in German which he translated for the first time for commoners to read! Now everyone could read and study the bible at home with their families! There are many resources to discover more, including: www.elca500.org , www.pbs.org (watch the Luther movie!), www.augsburgfortress.org 

Join us Sunday, October 29th for our Reformation Worship and Brunch! All are welcome
