Reformation Day – 95 Theses

Wittenberg Door

Reformation Sunday is October 27

We will gather this weekend, October 26 and 27, for worship as we usually do.  Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.  Our theme for the day will be Reformation Day.  We will remember and give thanks for the ministry of Martin Luther and the Reformers of the 1500s.  We choose this date because it is the final Sunday in October, and the Sunday in October closest to Reformation Day (October 31).  That is the date on which Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the castle church door in Wittenberg, in what is now Germany.

We have a permanent spot on our church web site which has a modern translation of Luther’s 95 Theses, as well we a brief explanation of the major themes.  You are invited to click on this link to view that page.  A printed version of this same information is available at the church in the Narthex/lobby.

Another part of our celebration of Reformation Sunday/Weekend is that we will display our Martin Luther Banner.  This will be on the banner stand, just to the left as you face the altar at MLLC.  Here is a catalog image of that banner.
