The Protestant Reformation: Then and Now

Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Northminster Presbyterian Church

On October Sunday mornings at 10 am in the Board Room, we will be commemorating events that began five hundred years ago in Europe. On October 31 in 1517, Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Cathedral. This event has traditionally been seen as launching the Protestant Reformation. Discover what brought about Luther’s distaste for many of the Roman Catholic traditions of his day. Led by the Rev. Dr. Jim Montgomery, this class will allow individuals to understand why the Reformation happened, what it was really about, and its influence on us as 21st century Presbyterians. The class will use a brief book by Martin Marty entitled "October 31, 1517: Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the World."
