The Reformation: A Study 500 Years in the Making   

 by MICKI DOLAN

 "...my conscience is captive to the Word of God. Thus I cannot and will not recant, because acting against one's conscience is neither safe nor sound. God help me. Amen"  ~Martin Luther

Martin Luther was known for many things, the Reformation, the foundation of the Lutheran church and indeed changing Western Civilization itself. During this important year, which commemorates these events, it is only right that we turn our attention to, and study, Martin Luther and the far reaching influence of his actions.

In conjunction with the 500th anniversary of the start of the Reformation, Pastor Browning will be holding a study group beginning on Wednesday, July 26, and continuing through August 30. 

Pastor said, "It makes sense to provide an opportunity to become more familiar with this defining period in history.  The Reformation had a profound impact on the manner in which we, and hundreds of millions of Christians through history have practiced the faith. The study will serve as an introduction to the key people, moments, and teachings of the Reformation movement. No advance preparation is necessary if you wish to attend."

The group will meet in the church at 7 p.m., and the session will be one hour long . Refreshments will be served.
