  • REFORMATION WALK- As we prepare to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, St.John Charter Oak is planning a special observation of this milestone and is asking our friends in the circuit if anyone is interested in participating.

    Concordia Publishing House (CPH) released a special resource to help congregations with their Reformation Anniversary celebrations. 'Reformation Walk' immerses participants in the sights, sounds and flavors of the Reformation era. Participants visit ten stations to experience the story of Martin Luther and learn how his work and writings started a movement that would change the course of history. They will meet Luther's parents and other guests, make pretzels, learn some German, play a game and more. This active events will really bring history to life.

    Plans are being made for September. If you are interested (or know someone who would be) in being an actor in one of the ten stations or helping or participating in other ways in the day's events, please call Linda at 678-3312 by June 30. Scripts are two pages or less. Time commitment would be the day of the event plus some conferencing with the Reformation Walk Team for a few hours in the week prior to the event.
