Reformation 500 Events
This year we mark the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Lutheran Reformation. On October 31, 1517 a monk named Martin Luther nailed Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. His statements of faith sought to challenge religious leaders to debate the disparity between church teachings and Scripture. Note the ways we will celebrate and join in!
