Service: “Look to the Rainbow” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

October 8 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

October 29 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Our culture celebrates the last day of October as Halloween, but that same day is also memorable as the anniversary of the defiant act that initiated the Protestant Reformation. This week it will be 500 years since the German monk Martin Luther posted his 95 claims about the corruptions of the Catholic Church on the Facebook of his time, the doors of the cathedral at Wittenberg. We are the heirs of his audacity; but are we still Protestants?
