Reformation 2017: Here We Stand!
October 31, 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, launching what became the Lutheran Reformation.
The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's Michigan District will hold a state-wide Reformation Worship Service on Sunday, October 15 at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center in East Lansing. Doors will open at 2 pm, with a preservice concert at 4 pm and the service at 5 pm. Dr. Patrick Ferry of Concordia University-Wisconsin will be the preacher; the concert and service will feature a 900-voice adult choir and 175-voice youth choir.
Messiah will hold one service on October 15 at 10 am, to encourage as many as possible to also attend the afternoon service in East Lansing. The District is organizing seating by congregation; to get your free tickets, please register online here by Monday, September 5. (Choir members already have seats reserved, and do not need to register.) Once you’ve registered, let us know you’re coming, and if you’re interested in group transportation to the service; you can sign up at our Welcome Center or in Adult Bible class, or contact the church office.
