Ideas that Rocked the World

Everybody put notices on church doors back then. That was the community bulletin board. So, when a monk climbed the stairs of the church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517, no one imagined how the piece of paper he would nail to the door would change things. For Martin Luther, his was a quest for truth. He thought that by becoming a priest he would find his way in life. To his surprise, it only led to more questions. He had tried to find answers but it seemed the ones he was coming up with were at odds with the status quo. And so, with his 95 theses Luther made the debate public and started what is called the Reformation.

The influence of the Reformation is vast and diverse. It most intensely affected the Christian Church but it also greatly influenced education, economics and government. For the next five weeks in our worship services we’ll be studying how Reformation teaching continues to touch our lives today. Our series theme is: Reformation Roots.

October 1 – Rooted in the Bible

This Sunday join us for one of our weekend services as we look at what the Bible means to us and why it is the foundation on which we rest our faith and build our lives.
