A central part of the Reformation 500 commemoration in 2016-2017 is a synod-wide, cross-generational parish education curriculum called Ever-Reforming: A Reformation 500 Cross-Generational Study. Edited by Mindy Makant and Eric Childers, this 44-session study was written by a variety of authors across the synod.
Hold the date for this year's Fall Convocation at Lutheridge! All rostered leaders and professional church workers--musicians, administrators, youth and family ministry workers, etc.--are encouraged to attend for education, inspiration and fellowship. Guest speaker is Matthew Skinner of Luther Seminary. Registration is open now.
