Reformation Sunday is October 29! At the 11:00 am service, we will also celebrate the Confirmation of 13 of our young people. Reformation Sunday is observed in October, recalling Martin Luther's posting of 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517.

The Metro DC Synod will host a Reformation worship service at Washington National Cathedral at 4:00 pm on Sunday, October 29. All are invited! The Rev.

This is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our heritage and worship together in an inspiring setting.

Mark your calendar for November 4 for our celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation! This will include a special German Dinner beginning at 6:00 pm following the Saturday service. We would appreciate help with planning, decorating, and setting up & breaking down the event in the Fellowship Hall so stay tuned for ways to get involved.
