Did You Know?
On Sunday, February 19, the Reformation 500 team was busy. Along with hearing from Martin Lutherand Philip Melanchthon during the children’s sermon, and watching and discussing the Luther Movie at Central Theater, we alsointroduced ‘the door’ into our faith life here at First Lutheran. 500 years ago Luther nailed the 95 theses to the Wittenburg, Germany
church door to inform the public of reforms that were desperately needed. In honor of that bold act,
we have constructed our own door here at First. Like Luther, we are called to renew and reform the
church in bold and courageous new ways and we are asking for you to prayerfully consider adding
your ideas for renewal for this congregation. The door will be available this entire anniversary year
for everyone to write down (on post-it notes) ideas for renewal and ‘nail’ them to the door.
Many thanks to Chris Barnhart for creating and constructing the door.
- Renewal Ideas...please continue to "post" your ideas for renewal of First Lutheran
on the door in the Fellowship Room.
