Five Hundred Years of Faith

Join us for worship on Sunday, October 29, 2017, as we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation with a service that highlights the music of the 16th century.  All of the liturgical music with be in the “choral idiom” encouraged by Martin Luther.  Our choir will contribute music by Dietrich Buxtehude, Benedict Ducis, and Johann Walther.  The organ prelude and postlude will be Bach compositions based on the “Catechism Hymns.” 

From Pastor Paul                                                                 

For Lutherans, the month of October is the month of the Reformation.  Whether or not he actually nailed them to a church door, October 31st is the day when we commemorate Martin Luther’s 95 Theses as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.  In 2017 we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran church.

For the past few weeks, our Sunday worship has started to reflect Reformation themes.  We’ve begun our worship acknowledging the God “who reforms us again and again” and we’ve confessed that we have “not allowed” God’s grace “to set us free.”  In October, we’ll add Reformation music to our worship, making use of the hymns and service music created by Luther himself, as Tom Hall will discuss in his article.

At our “Supper Study” on Wednesdays in October and November, we will continue a seven-week class called “By Faith: Conversations with Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.”  After a light supper, we discuss how this summary of the Christian faith, written in 1529, continues to nourish and inform our lives as 21st -century Christians.
