Getting Prepared for 500 Years of Reformation Then and New With Dr. Timothy Wengert

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Timothy WengertRegister now for this day long program here at Faith with Dr. Timothy Wengert, world renowned Luther scholar. Dr. Wengert kicks off our 18 month Reformation Anniversary observance with presentations on “Deciphering the 95 Theses and Re-Forming The Christian Life.” Dr. Wengert is an unbelievably gifted teacher and theologian who has a wonderful way of making our theology real and exciting. Registration brochures are on the kiosk and counter and we would encourage your early response as registration will be beginning very shortly throughout the Synod. Our day will begin with the Eucharist at which Bishop Bartholomew will be preaching, followed by morning and afternoon presentations with lunch being served. Please note: There is no registration fee for members of Faith.

Holocaust Symposium, October 2016

You are invited to join us in October for a special Holocaust Symposium.  Pastor Mac will share presentations on October 8 and 15 from 9 a.m. till noon, and then on October 22-23 we will have an optional trip to the United States Memorial Holocaust Museum in Washington.  Besides our day at the Museum, our trip will include a “Washington By Night” tour with visits to the Lincoln Memorial, and Vietnam, Korea and World War II Memorials.  Sunday, we will worship at Luther Place Lutheran Church, just blocks from the White House.  Luther Place is one of the preeminent urban ministries in the ELCA.  On the way home we will be stopping at Chesapeake City for lunch and a walk about.  If you are interested in joining us for the Symposium and/or optional trip, please send a return email or sign the interest sheet  on the kiosk.  Guests are welcome to join us.
