April 2015

As many of you know, Rev. Heike is going to take a group of congregants and friends on a trip to Germany in June. They will be walking (well, mostly driving) in the footsteps of Martin Luther, the leader of the Protestant Reformation in Germany. In preparation for the trip, she will be hosting an Adult Education series on this time of our church’s history.

Bach and the Lutheran Legacy
Sunday May 10, 11:30am

This is a great documentary about how Luther shaped the music of JS Bach

The Reformation Continues
Sunday May 17, 11:30am

How has the Protestant Reformation informed and changed the centuries that followed. We are going to explore how the Reformation is still affecting us today.

Women’s Retreat
May 8-9 at Craigville Conference Center

The topic for the retreat will be based on the book by Anne Morrow Lindbergh “Gift of the Sea”. The book offers wise and elegant meditations on youth and age, love and marriage, solitude, peace, and contentment. How do we reconcile our most personal needs with obligation to family, friends, partners, and work?
