From the Pastor
Reformation Anniversary
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  - Psalm 46:1
2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of Luther's nailing of the 95 Theses to the door of Castle Church, Wittenberg. The door was the bulletin board of the University of Wittenberg, where Luther taught. He didn't think anything of posting the 95 propositions for scholarly debate. However, within 6 weeks the theses were being read everywhere in Europe. You never know when God is going to use you to support His gospel. We are two years away from the Reformation anniversary. How will God use you?
