175th Anniversary Celebration Special speaker             


Martin Luther was a German monk who lived in the time of the Middle Ages. Through serious study of the Scripture, he came to disagree with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church thereby challenging them to a debate by nailing 95 Concerns (Theses) on the door of the church at Wittenberg. The church refused to debate him demanding that he recant. He refused saying he must follow his conscience and Scripture.  Martin Luther's life was forever in danger from that time on. But with that, a reformation of the church took place leading to the birth of the Protestant faith. 

On Sunday, June 14, 2015, The Great Reformer Martin Luther will lead us in worship through portrayal by Mr. Kenneth Hammontree, sponsored by WELCA.  This will be a 9:30 am service with a short meet and greet after in the upper narthex.  It is our hope that as we prepare to celebrate our 175th Anniversary we reflect on our history and how we came to be the Lutheran Church.  Mark your calendar now to join us on Sunday, June 14th.
