Rick Steves' "European Christmas" screening
at our next Prayer Circle,
Weds. Dec. 6, 10am
Our Prayer Circles have been a big success for our small congregation. A group has been faithfully gathering in the Lord's name on Wednesday mornings, twice each month, for coffee and bagels, meaningful conversation, scriptures and prayer. These sessions are not only a mid-week opportunity for us to experience a sense of community, but also a time to share thoughts and concerns about spirituality and the world. Our prayers circles continue Wednesday, December 6 at 10:00am in the Redeemer chapel with a screening of Rick Steves' "European Christmas" (watch the trailer below.) Come join us for this educational program as well as prayer, refreshments and good conversation.

 

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation, which contributed to the birth of our modern age. In this one-hour special - filmed on location in Europe - Rick Steves tells the story of a humble monk who lived a dramatic life.

Rick Steves' "Luther and The Reformation"

Our church celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Reformation on October 29, 2017 with a special worship service and a screening of Rick Steves' "Luther and the Reformation" documentary.  Mr. Steves, renowned travel expert and author (as well an ELCA Lutheran) has produced this wonderful resource to help us better understand our Lutheran roots and aid in our continued journey of understanding the Gospel. If you unable to join us for the screening, you may view the documentary online on YouTube. Members of our congregation are welcome to borrow our DVD to view the program.
