Following the 10:30am service, Pastor Rebecca, priest and church historian, will be giving a forum on the Protestant Reformation.
Join us in learning more about this pivotal time in the life of the church. This year marks the 500th year of reform since Martin Luther posted his 95 theses.
You are in for a special treat!
