Looking forward: In honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, Trinity, St Andrew Presbyterian, First Presbyterian and Christ the Servant Lutheran will present a Celebrate Reformation Hymn Festival on Sunday afternoon, October 29 at St. Andrew Presbyterian at 3:30. We will sing hymns from both the Reformed tradition and the Lutheran tradition, with a hymn from a "non-conformist" English poet, Isaac Watts, thrown in for good measure. Readings from Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, etc., will round out the celebration. An offering will be taken to support Our Daily Bread.
