Church to host production on Protestant Reformation
The production, “Luther Live! The Reformation Revisited,” will start at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, at Our Saviour Lutheran Church near Warrenton.
The congregation of Our Saviour Lutheran Church near Warrenton will host a celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29.
Luther Live! The Reformation Revisited answers many questions surrounding Martin Luther. Who was he? What did he do? And why did he do it?
Even lifelong Lutherans don’t know the ins and outs of circumstances leading to the Reformation. This original production provides the “who, what, where, why, and when” about Martin Luther — in an hour. The interactive performance features narration, theatrical vignettes and personal stories from congregation members, plus a special skit by church youth.
And, of course, there will be music. Mr. Luther was an avid composer and dedicated to sharing the gospel through song. The traditional adult choir, Voices of Praise (a contemporary music ensemble), the Hand Bell Choir and several youths will share music that stems directly from Mr. Luther or Reformation period themes.
Following the performance, a “Brats & Root Beer” reception will be held in the fellowship hall. Mini-bratwurst and red cabbage, deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, German desserts and root beer will be served.
All are welcome. Reservations are requested to this event, for which free-will offerings will be donated to Lutheran Disaster Response, in ongoing hurricane relief efforts. Visit tinyurl.com/LutherLive to reserve your spot today.
