Reformation Week in the SWCA Synod
In addition to each congregation's observance of Reformation Sunday, three synod-wide services took place: October 28 at the Samuelson Chapel at Cal Lutheran in Thousand Oaks, October 29 at Trinity, Long Beach, and October 31at St. Paul's, Santa Monica.
Synod members attended events from the Reformation Service at the National Cathedral, the "Looking Back and Called Forward" ELCA commemoration and worship on Capitol Hill, and the unveiling of a bust of Martin Luther in Lima, Peru.
Many churches included their harvest festivals and Trunks of Treats outreach events in their Reformation Observances, as well as confirmations and baptisms. Thought the synod we wore red, sang, and celebrated our faith in God's forgiving and liberating Word.
