Adult Sunday School – Martin Luther

The Protestant Reformation

Tradition has it that on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted 95 points for discussion on the door to the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.  Luther’s 95 Theses criticized many of the doctrines & policies of the Catholic Church, which as the time was the only church in Europe.  While Luther listed a great variety of complaints, he particularly focused on the selling of indulgences, church traditions, God’s grace, & the authority of the pope.

In 1054, disagreements in the one holy apostolic church split Christ’s church in half—east & west.  Since the division of the western church into Catholic & Protestant in the 1500s, there are now 45,000 Protestant denominations. How can Christ’s church be so divided?

Since the motto of our particular denomination is “Reformed & Always Reforming,” it would be good for us to understand what that really means. So through October, our sermons & Adult Sunday School class will look at the issues that divide & unite us.

Join us in the Fellowship area Sunday mornings in October at 9:00AM as we use a PBS Documentary on Martin Luther to look at the history, theology, & meaning of the Protestant Reformation for us today & into the future
