New season…new series!

OK…we begin a new series on Sunday, and I can’t wait. This is a topic we’ve never tackled before that has profound impact on how we function as a church. We’re throwing it back 500 years to October 31, 1517! Party like it’s 1517, right?! This date is “one to remember” as a posting was nailed to the door of a church in Wittenburg, Germany. This posting of ninety-five theses launched what became known as the Protestant Reformation. Religion would not return to “business as usual.” This spiritual awakening shook Europe as the call to recover the sole authority of Scripture and the saving grace of Jesus was resolutely made.

How does a history-altering event that began 500 years ago continue to dynamically shape faith today? Oh…that’s a fantastic question and one we will answer. Join us this week and see how God used relevant, beautiful, and joy-giving truth in 1517 to carry the gospel forward!
