Reformation Skit

Commemorate the Reformation – and the Reformer!
This year, on Reformation Sunday (October 29, 2017), we will be commemorating the 500th Anniversary of Luther’s posting of the 95 Thesis. In honor of that, we will be doing a Skit on Martin Luther’s life and the Reformation during our one 9:30 a.m. worship service that Sunday.
However, we need volunteers to step up and take on the roles of the reformer himself, as well as his family, his supporters and even those who opposed his movement. If you’re interested in participating, we have fourteen parts, of varying lengths. Please contact the church office (877-5423 or graceluthch@earthlink.net) as soon as possible if you’re interested, as we need to get the scripts out to you for your review, and arrange one run through before that Sunday.
This is a fun way to commemorate the Reformation and celebrate the man who had the courage to say: “Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”

Fall Meetings

  • TOWN HALL MEETING to be held October 22 in the sanctuary after the 2nd service. We will discuss the agenda items for the November 12 Congregational Meeting.  We hope that this informal atmosphere will make it easier for questions and answers.
  • THE FALL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING will be conducted in the Sanctuary after second service on November 12.
