Celebrating 500 years of Reformation

Oct. 8 at 9:15-10:15am, Education Hall: You say “tomato” and I say “tomahto”: Lutherans and Catholics at 500, led by Dr. Cristie Traina (Professor of Religious Studies, Northwestern University; Pastor Bill’s wife)

 When Martin Luther nailed up his list of 95 complaints against Western Christianity, no one imagined that it would spark a division lasting for half a millennium. For centuries, both Lutherans and Catholics have defined themselves as “not those other guys” while in fact moving closer.  Come learn some of the reasons we’ve decided to “call the calling off off” and commemorate the Reformation together.

Sunday, Oct. 15 at 9:15-10:15am or 10:30-11:30am, Education Hall: Watch Rick Steves’ video: “Luther and the Reformation”

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation, which contributed to the birth of our modern age. In this one-hour special — filmed on location in Europe — Rick Steves tells the story of a humble monk who lived a dramatic life. Rick visits key sites relating to the Reformation (including Erfurt, Wittenberg, and Rome) and explores the complicated political world of 16th-century Europe — from indulgences to iconoclasts, and from the printing press to the Counter-Reformation. It’s a story of power, rebellion and faith that you’ll never forget.

 

Sunday, Oct. 22 at 9:15-10:15am or 10:30-11:30am, Education Hall: Discussion on Rick Steves’ “Luther and the Reformation” film; led by Rev. Andrew Packman

Watch the film at church or watch it at home, and then join Andrew for discussion on the Reformation—its people, places, and impact—then and now!

Oct. 22: “Beer and Hymns” at The Office; 4:00-6:00 pm

Love the good ol’ hymns of our Lutheran tradition? Love a good ol’ lager? This event brings the two together! Join us at The Office in downtown St. Charles (201 E Main Street) for a good ol’ sing-along. Invite your friends and neighbors! We’ll meet in the upstairs Board Room (handicap accessible from the back). Organizers: Joshua McClure and Pastor Sarah

October 29: Reformation Worship at 8:00, 9:15, and 10:30am ~ WEAR RED!

Pastor Ruben Duran, ELCA Director for New Congregational Development and a disciple at Bethlehem, will be preaching at all services on Reformation Sunday. He will be using Lucas Cranach’s altarpiece for St. Mary’s  Church in Wittenberg as a “teaching tool.”   Please note: A copy of the altarpiece will not be on display in the sanctuary the week before Reformation Day, as previously planned, but copies will be available for disciples to examine during the sermon

Make sure to wear red to worship in celebration of God’s reforming Spirit at work in the church and in the world!
