Sunday Worship Series:
“Life Through the Luther Lens” (Sunday Worship Sermons & Messages)
In this 500th Anniversary year of Lutheranism, we’ll reflect on Scripture and Faith through the eyes and mind of our founder, Martin Luther. What’s life like, looking through the Luther lens?
“The Heart of Luther’s Lyrics” (Tuesdays 11 AM, Wednesdays 7 PM)
With Sunday’s focus on Luther’s thinking (Reformation sermons, lectures and treatises), midweek we’ll encounter his song lyrics prayerfully, for a glimpse into his (and God’s) heart.
