The first four sessions will include a brief Evening Prayer service with 3-5 Lutheran hymns selected by the host congregation. Following the speaker’s message, refreshments will be served as a fellowship opportunity.

The Joint Reformation Sunday event will include a full Worship service with The Lord’s Supper celebrated. There will be a combined choir from the participating congregations. The guest speaker will provide the evening’s message and refreshments will follow for additional fellowship.

Come worship with us for a laity refresher perspective on what the Reformation has meant to Lutheran Christians. A Nursery will be available for little children during each of the five services. Questions about these services may be directed to any of the four pastors serving as session speakers. This would be an excellent learning opportunity for everyone, especially confirmation students and new or prospective congregational members.
