Go to Germany in 2017! 500th Anniversary of Reformation

December 19, 2016

Pastors Joel and Wendy have been asked to be a part of tour to Germany in 2017 which will mark 500 years since Martin Luther posted 95 ideas (theses) for debate on the church door in a small town in Germany in 1517, launching what is known as the “Reformation.”

You are invited! The trip dates are April 24 – May 4 2017. Pre-trip dates to Italy are April 20-24.

This is a very unique and amazing opportunity to travel with Dr. Walter Sundberg, retired professor of Church History from Luther Seminary of St. Paul, MN. Dr. Sundberg will teach at all the Reformation historical sites. He will also teach on a pre-trip to Rome, Florence and Venice, recounting the history leading to the Reformation. The trip will end in Berlin. The implications of the Reformation insights for our time will be a part of the trip conversations. Dr. Sundberg is a very dynamic teacher! In the midst of the trip, “Martin and Katy Luther” played by Johan and Sonja Hinderlie will be offering humorous and insightful dramas along the way. Johan and Sonja are the retired directors of Mount Carmel Ministries, a Lutheran Bible camp and former summer campus of Lutheran Bible Institute, located in Alexandria, MN.
